Plot Summary

Retired FBI profiler Terry McCaleb (Eastwood), who has recently had a heart transplant, is hired by Graciela Rivers (De Jesus), to investigate the death of her sister, Gloria, who happens to have given McCaleb his heart. On the case, he soon deduces that the killer, who staged the murder to look like a random robbery, may actually be a serial killer Terry was trailing for years in the FBI. Can the elderly and feeble McCaleb, who had intended to spend his retirement living on his boat in the Los Angeles harbor, and who can't drive, and has to nap regularly, muster up the endurance to find the killer?

Trivia Thanks to Eastwood's no frills, fast-paced shooting style and editing skills, the film was in theaters a mere four months after completing photography. See more »
Goofs Several times reference is made to McCaleb having bloodtype AB with CMV-. For transplant patients, CMV means nothing. Of much greater importance would be whether they were both rH- as someone who is rH- would develop antibodies and quickly reject tissue that was rH+. See more »
