The Tin Woman follows the story of Joy, a woman in her mid-30s who recently received a heart transplant. However, instead of relishing her new life, Joy enters a downward spiral, unsure whether she truly deserves a second chance. Meanwhile, Alice and Hank mourn the loss of their son, Jack, whose heart was used to save Joy. When Joy decides to meet Jack’s family to find closure, their grief transforms as they finally have to accept his death. Based on a true story, The Tin Woman is a complex web of laughter and grief used to explore loss, family, and what it means to be given new life.
