It’s the future, and the creation of mechanical organs has proven both very efficient and very valuable. But the machinery’s high price tag has led its creators, ”The Union,” to enlist the services of ”repo men” to track down patients who have not paid their bills. Remy (Jude Law) is one of the best in the business, but when he suffers from cardiac failure he gets his own mechanical heart, and a large bill to go with it. After failing to make payments, The Union sends Jake, his former partner and friend (Forest Whitaker), to take back the machinery. Seriously people, can we figure out health care, already?
