Two men go into business supplying medical colleges with cadavers by robbing graves. |
Nineteenth-century yuppies decide to get-rich-quick by engaging in a morally questionable business venture: they provide a medical academy with still warm corpses.
Medical students always need bodies to learn their craft on, don't they... and Burke and Hare happily do what they must to supply the demand. Then one student begins to suspect that's something's not quite right -- and he begins to look into the origins of some of those corpses. Based on a true story.
