Every day, these doctors and their assistants hold human life almost literally in their hands. They are the heart surgeons and perfusionists of the Ghent University Hospital. We had the chance to meet some of them and created two intriguing films about the people behind the operating tables. This is a story about what motivates them to do the things they do, with passion, ‘Hartstocht’.
