The film is about Pat, a drummer for Rogue Wave, undergoing peritoneal dialysis as he travels with his band and captures how it feels to wait for an organ. Through Pat’s friends we see the testing needed to become a living donor and meet two different families who give consent for the donation of a deceased loved one. There is a first time meeting between donor and recipient, a donor remembrance ceremony to honor deceased donors and a six antigen match kidney. With great music, high production value and lots of emotion you will see our stories in Pat’s story.
D Tour is unique because it shows the entire organ donation and transplant process unfold through one man’s story.
