Canadian distributor: ThinkFilm

Set in some post-apocalyptic near future, the film centres on Gabriel Goode who is The Limb Salesman. More succinctly, he is a disgraced doctor who regenerates limbs on the black market. His next customer/patient is located deep in northern Canada. Clara is the daughter of a tyrannical patriarch, Abe Fielder. Gabriel has been hired to regenerate new legs for Clara because her legs are malformed due to a genetic birth defect caused by atmospheric pollutants, a condition not uncommon in this future time. At the family mines, men work in abominable conditions deep beneath the earth`s surface to purify ice veins for water exportation. In this dark story we learn that the good Doctor has his own mysterious past. A past that revisits him in ghoulish nightmares about the time when he had his heart stolen in a black market organ theft, and replaced with a mechanical surrogate. But love conquers all, apparently, and so with new limbs attached, Clara begins a daily routine of exercises and slowly regains her strength and a bond begins to form between them. The Limb Salesman is a story of surrender and sacrifice, in a future where water is the most precious substance and body parts go to the highest bidder. A time when we must confront our darkness and find our hearts.
