Instead they steal an ambulance, but they discover - during their escape from the police - that there's a dying heart Patient and a hospital intern, Julie, in the back of the ambulance. Julie tells the two brothers that the Patient will die, if they don't turn around immediatly and go back to the hospital! This splits up the two brothers. They are now, all of a sudden, in the dilemma of their life: Should they save the Patient - or their own Mother!...Tim is forced to turn against his own big brother to prevent getting a murder on his conscience!
