Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A Santa Fe district attorney and his wife take desperate measures to find a lung donor for their dying daughter in this topical thriller starring Dermot Mulroney and Diane Kruger. Their daughter Chloe stricken with a degenerative condition that's quickly cutting off her air supply, Paul (Mulroney) and his wife, Diane (Kruger), hit a dead end in the American medical system. But when Chloe's health takes a turn for the worse, desperation leads Paul to Juarez, Mexico, and a mysterious medico named Dr. Novarro. Though Dr. Novarro may be the only hope for performing a successful lung transplant before it's too late, his close ties to the Mexican criminal underworld soon lead the desperate parents to second-guess their decision to go with such a radical alternative treatment. But before Paul and Diane can get Chloe to the operating room, they realize she might not be the only member of the family that will never make it back home.
