    John Q Archibald is a factory worker whose job has been cut to 20 hours a week. Even with his wife working, the family is sliding further into debt. Yet despite their financial problems, the Archibalds are happy, loving and especially proud of their nine year old son, Mike. Then tragedy strikes. Mike collapses and a deadly heart condition is diagnosed. The Archibalds brace themselves for Mikes risky transplant operation, only to discover their insurance company will not pay for it. They will need $250,000 or Mike will die. When Mikes condition worsens and the hospital informs the family that without the money they will send him home, John reaches breaking point. In desperation, he takes the hospital emergency staff hostage and refuses to release anyone until his sons operation is assured.
