Still recovering from a heart transplant, retired F.B.I. profiler Terry McCaleb (Clint Eastwood) returns to service when his own blood analysis offers clues to the identity of a serial killer. - IMDb Editors

Retired F.B.I. profiler Terry McCaleb (Clint Eastwood), who has recently had a heart transplant, is hired by Graciella Rivers (Wanda 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 F.B.I. 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? - Amir Al-Kourainy

Now, against his doctor's advice, McCaleb must overcome his disabling condition to track down the serial killer; however, is frail McCaleb up to the task? - Nick Riganas
