About Desperate Measures

Andy Garcia and Michael Keaton star in this gripping drama about a father who must go to great lengths to save his critically ill son.

Frank Connor (Garcia) is a San Francisco police officer who lives to uphold the law, but is forced to take desperate measures in order to find a comparable bone marrow donor for his son. Peter McCabe (Keaton) is the boy's perfect DNA match. He's also a homicidal, yet charismatic sociopath serving a life sentence in a maximum-security prison.

When McCabe escapes on his way to the hospital for the transplant, he leaves a trail of dead and wounded in his wake, and the hospital becomes a bloody battleground. In the ensuing cat-and-mouse game, Connor finds that he and McCabe are more alike than he imagined, since McCabe's survival represents his son's only hope.
