REVIEW:

The future is not written in stone. Medicine could find the cure to disease, and nobody would have to suffer or die. Contagions, illness would be a thing of the past, and life could be lived longer and in health. But how many lives are worth that price? How far would we be willing to go to save the world?

If one person must die to save life, would we kill them? If one must be sacrificed to destroy what destroys us, should they die? Would you choose to take their life to heal the sick, the wounded? Would you choose their death over your own? Would you play God?

Disease has ravaged this world, and still we fight to survive. War has left its wounded, and they struggle to live. Accidents happen, and survivors are left in the care of loved ones and friends. But what if that could all change? Would we go to extreme measures to guarantee that change?

We are in the care of doctors. We know their oath to protect life, and we trust them with our lives. But do some have our best intentions at heart, or are we pawns in their game for the future of a better tomorrow?

Life hangs in the balance. Which one to choose? The hero or the villain? Which one to save, and which one should die? And the decision is made, a decision that may save another life.

And on his watch, another patient succumbs to death, leaving Dr. Guy Luthan questioning the details leading to the man's demise, and he begins to look further into the death of his patient. But he has no idea of what he is about to walk into. Questions raised over the now missing body and medical records leads him further into a web of lies and murder, and a trap is set, pushing him under the spotlight of suspicion. But Guy will not surrender and pushes forward to uncover a conspiracy that now holds his life in its hands.

With twists and turns, this tale of mystery and suspense will push you further into the depth of conspiracy. With raw emotion, this story will hold your heart and question the choices asked and choices made. Through the eyes and soul of two brilliant actors, Gene Hackman and Hugh Grant, we find ourselves torn between two men sworn to protect life, but one man's crusade to save the lives of others at the cost of others clashes with another man's belief to not play God. But would we go to Extreme Measures for the future of a better tomorrow? Would we choose to sacrifice others to save lives? This haunting tale strikes deep and leaves us questioning long after the credits roll.
