In Chicago, Illinois, six year old Emily Howland requires a kidney transplant imminently or will die from kidney failure. Her parents, Sarah and Kirk Howland, the latter who owns a successful car lot, are not appropriate matches. As such, Kirk unilaterally decides to go back to a life that he abandoned eight years ago in Portland, Oregon, a life about which Sarah knows nothing and about which Kirk does not plan on telling her. Then, he, under his real name of Mark Drummond, and his then girlfriend, Jamie Butler, had rented a single engine plane to fly from Portland to Las Vegas to elope, as three of their four parents disapproved of them getting married, largely due to class differences. Mark at the time was floundering in life trying to figure out what to do with no savings. Mark and Jamie ended up stealing $200,000 of Mrs. Butler's money with every intention of paying it back when they could. However, in a raging storm, their plane crashed in a lake en route, the wreckage and bodies... Written by Huggo

Kidney Failure
23 September 2015 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

In a nursing home, an older woman sadly looks at a handsome younger man's photograph. Eight years earlier, in Portland, Oregon, we meet poor auto-mechanic Chris Kramer (as Mark Drummond) and his pretty fiancée Pascale Hutton (as Jamie Butler). Her wealthy parents don't want Ms. Hutton to marry Mr. Kramer. They've even discovered the poor man has a relative in prison. Kramer's understanding older brother Ian Ziering (as David Drummond), a police officer, suggests putting off the wedding. Undaunted, Kramer and Hutton decide to elope. After obtaining a $200,000 "loan" from her parents, Kramer and Hutton take off in a rented two-seat airplane. The weather is dangerous and it looks like the plane might crash. Eight years later, the plot and characters unravel in predictably unbelievable heights of stupidity.
