After trying to raise the money and coming up short, John decides to take the hospital emergency room hostage until doctors agree to perform his son’s surgery, planning to kill himself so they can use his heart to save his son. In a last minute turn-of-events, a donor heart is found and the boy’s life is saved, along with John’s.
