A documentary about life aboard the largest civilian hospital ship in the world, is about to hit our shores. It's called 'The Surgery Ship' and it documents the life-changing experiences of patients and medical volunteers on the ship Africa Mercy. The vessel is run by Mercy Ships, a charitable organistation that provides free surgery to those who would otherwise go without. The film is produced and directed by Australian documentary-maker Madeleine Hetherton.
