Denzel Washington is the desperate father who, lacking the insurance required to cover his sickly child's heart transplant, turns his hospital nightmare into a hostage situation. The shortcomings of America's healthcare system are baldly exposed as negotiator Robert Duvall tries to stop a bad situation from getting worse. He is not helped by Anne Heche as the hospital administrator whose sympathies extend only to her account books, nor hard-nosed surgeon James Woods, whose bedside manner could do with considerable improvement.
