Guy Luthan (Hugh Grant), a British doctor performing his residency in the ER of Manhattan's Gramercy Hospital, is troubled over a patient that appears suddenly, has the most inexplicable symptoms, then disappears from existence just as rapidly. There is even no record of him ever being admitted into the morgue. Though warned to move on to more pressing issues- including by his friend nurse Jodie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Luthan persists until he arrives at the door of famous surgeon Dr. Lawrence Myrick (Gene Hackman).

All clues seem to say that this medical genius is using the homeless for human experimentation to advance his research. Yet how far can we go in harming others in the hopes of alleviating the suffering of a loved one?
