There's only one catch: the potential donor is convicted multiple murderer Peter McCabe who sees a trip to the hospital as the perfect opportunity to get what he wants most: freedom.

In addition to some of the scenes filmed in Pittsburgh, an elaborate set was constructed in a vacant hangar at what is now known as the San Bernardino International Airport, what used to be Norton Air Force base. Both the jail/prison was three stories high and the hospital, built to the same level, were both physically connected by the concourse seen in the movie. See more »
When Conner is helping a shot officer shot in the arm, the officer's shirt is open showing a stomach wound and his white t-shirt with a big blood stain. In the next shot, the shirt is buttoned and we see his uniform is navy blue. His open shirt is seen in next shot as he is on table being examined. See more »
Well-crafted but overly contrived thriller about a man driven to desperate means to try and save his dying son. Garcia is convincing as a San Francisco cop who's forced to choose between doing his job and being a good father when he discovers that his ill son can be saved with a bone marrow transplant. The only compatible donor: imprisoned convict and multiple murderer Keaton (in a cunning performance). The story is intriguing, and there are plenty of good performances, but the script just becomes more and more far-fetched as it goes along. Watchable thanks to the film's talented cast, and a witty cat and mouse game between the two leads. **
