Overview

In this futuristic blend of sci-fi and action, a Supreme Court ruling has overturned laws against suicide, and a firm called Lifecorps has sprung up to take advantage of a new loophole in the law. Lifecorps will pay healthy people large sums of money for the right to harvest their organs after they die, but on the condition that they choose to die in a timely fashion, generally within a year. Jim Gabriel Eric Roberts is a blue-collar worker whose son is dying, but he can't afford the treatment that could save his life. Desperate, Jim signs a contract with Lifecorps, but his son dies before he can cash the check. With no further need for the money, Jim tries to cancel the contract, but discovers Lifecorps not only isn't interested, but that they want to harvest his organs sooner than originally agreed, forcing Jim to run for his life. Originally produced for the TNT cable network, Race Against Time also features Cary Elwes, Chris Sarandon, and Sarah Wynter.
