Clay Beresford (Christensen) finds himself awake during his heart surgery, and learns of his doctors’ plan to murder him. Despite being paralyzed, Clay’s spirit is able to leave his body as he witnesses the fall out from his surgery and the plot against his life. A poor box office run and a cold critical reception does little to inspire confidence in this thriller’s entertainment value.
