Synopsis

Nick Cassavetes directs this adaptation of the tear-jerker novel by Jodi Picoult. Abigail Breslin stars as Anna, a 13-year-old girl who was conceived by IVF in order to be a genetic match for her older sister, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), who has battled leukemia since childhood. Despite being a normal, healthy child, Anna has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions and injections for the sake of her sister's health. Now, when she must forgo the opportunity to go to a prestigious hockey camp in order to donate a kidney to her sister who has gone into renal failure, Anna decides that enough is enough and sues her parents (Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric) for medical emancipation. Alec Baldwin co-stars as Campbell Alexander, the attorney who takes on Anna's case.
