HERE presents the world premiere of this drama about a commercial real estate broker who receives a heart transplant, and finds himself forever changed. More…
Barry Weiss is a hotshot broker: arrogant, smart, and tough. His girlfriend Janie is his take-no-prisoners business partner. They ride the big wave of ambition and wealth, self-involved and self-satisfied. But when Barry needs a new heart, he descends into a comically callous world of medically inept doctors and hard-bitten nurses. As he recuperates, he finds that everything feels wrong. What are these feelings, these thoughts, all these questions? When he shows up on the doorstep of his donor's widow, he begins a dangerous journey into the true nature of his illness and the deeper meaning of his new heart.
