—Stars, maybe Love—
A motorist is driving dangerously down a winding road, recklessly passing cars until she comes upon a slow moving Mack truck. As she attempts to pass, her car is clipped by a truck going in the opposite direction, then slammed full-force by the Mack truck, killing her in the process.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, Illinois, factory worker John Quincy Archibald and his wife Denise face financial trouble due to cutbacks at John’s job, which in turn are the result of an ongoing economic recession. One Sunday afternoon, they witness their young son Michael collapse at his baseball game and rush him to the hospital. After a series of tests, John and Denise are informed by cardiologist Dr. Raymond Turner and hospital director Rebecca Payne that Michael has a now-failing enlarged heart and needs a heart transplant to survive. The procedure is very expensive: a $250,000 minimum, with a 30% down payment of $75,000 required to get Michael’s name on the organ recipient list. John tells them that the family has insurance through his job, but after looking through his policy, they inform him that there is an issue with it.
Upon visiting his workplace’s insurance office, John is told that because his employer has dropped him from full-time to part-time and recently switched insurance carriers, his health insurance has been changed and the new policy does not cover the surgery. After failing to get his original policy reinstated and unsuccessfully trying to find alternate aid elsewhere, John and Denise are left to raise the $75,000 by themselves. They attempt to raise the money by various methods, but only manage to come up with about a third of the necessary payment. The hospital eventually tires of waiting and decides to send Michael home to die, and Denise, outraged and distraught, urges John to do something.
Deciding that drastic measures need to be taken to save his son, John enters the hospital’s ER with a handgun, gathers hostages consisting of both patients and staff, including Dr. Turner, and locks the place down. However, an ambulance dropping off a gunshot victim arrives, and John agrees to let the victim in to receive treatment, but the police, notified by either the paramedics or hospital security, arrive soon afterwards and set up a perimeter. John then sets his demands with hostage negotiator Lt. Frank Grimes: get his son’s name on the recipient list as soon as possible and the hostages live. Grimes then stands down to let John cool off.
Meanwhile, as the remaining hospital staff give each of the patients the treatment they came to the emergency room for, most of them start to support John as they begin to understand his situation and reflect on the flaws of America’s health care system. After a while, John agrees to release some hostages in exchange for having his son’s name added to the list within an hour afterward. After getting into a brief scuffle with abusive and arrogant rich punk Mitch, whom he subdues and secures with help from Mitch’s battered girlfriend Julie (who dumps him afterwards), John releases expectant couple Steve and Miriam, immigrant mother Rosa, and Rosa’s infant son.
Meanwhile, Grimes and Payne meet with Denise and explain the situation to her, and Payne decides to let the hospital do the operation pro bono. Elated, Denise agrees to try and talk John down. However, at the same time, Police Chief Gus Monroe, deciding that the situation has too much political blowback to give in to John’s demands, overrides Grimes’ command, and gives a SWAT unit permission to insert a sniper into the building via an air shaft, opting to use Denise to set John up to be killed. The police lure John into position by diverting Denise’s call to a specific ER phone. John learns from Denise about Michael’s name being on the recipient list and his deteriorating condition, and speaks with his son, while the sniper gets into position. Unknown to anyone, Channel 8 News anchor Tuck Lampley, who is covering the hostage situation, has his team hack the police surveillance feed and broadcasts both John’s conversation with his family and the security feed on live national news.
Just as John ends his call, he discovers the hacked news coverage and notices the sniper, who then takes his shot, causing a panicked uproar both inside and outside the hospital. John is hit, but only receives a minor wound to the shoulder, though he fakes being killed to throw the police off-guard. Shortly afterwards, the sniper’s leg falls through the ceiling tiles. Outraged, John rises, pulls him out of the air shaft, and beats him. As John’s wound is treated, and Monroe fumes over the failed assassination attempt, the police discover the Channel 8 team’s actions and forcefully shut down their news feed. Meanwhile, Payne submits Michael’s name to the organ recipient list.
John, using the bound SWAT policeman as a human shield, steps outside to the sight of dozens of officers pointing weapons at him and a large, supportive crowd. John berates the police for the attempt on his life, and demands that his son be brought to the emergency room. The police agree to his request in exchange for the sniper. Once his son arrives, John reveals to the hostages his intention to commit suicide so his heart can be used to save his son. He persuades Dr. Turner to perform the operation, and two of his hostages bear witness to a will stating his last request. John says his last goodbyes to Michael, enters the operating room and loads a bullet into his gun, revealing that it was never loaded and he never intended to kill anyone.
After an initial misfire due to the gun’s safety, John prepares to end his life a second time. However, Denise then learns from Payne about a recently deceased organ donor (the woman killed in the beginning of the film) with Michael’s blood-type, and that her heart is about to arrive for his transplant. Denise runs to the emergency room, stops John from shooting himself and tells him the news. Once the heart arrives, John releases the remaining hostages and hostage Lester, disguised as John, surrenders to the police in his place. Grimes, however is the only person who notices this, and later finds John (who dressed up as one of the doctors to avoid arrest) watching Michael’s life-saving operation with Denise. He allows John to finish watching his son’s operation, and after it ends as a success, takes him into custody. In the aftermath, the entire ordeal becomes subject to a national debate about the quality and accessibility of insurance and healthcare.
At John’s trial, all of his former hostages testify on his behalf. Three months later, the jury acquits him of attempted murder and armed criminal action charges, but convicts him on charges of kidnapping and false imprisonment, much to the dismay of everyone, including a now-healthy Michael. John’s sentence is never revealed, but his lawyer says that the judge wouldn’t sentence him to more than three-to-five years and that she will try to get it reduced to two. The film ends with John being driven away to jail to await sentencing, while Michael thanks his father from a distance for all he did to save his life.
