All of Anna Fitzgerald's (Abigail Breslin) life has been lived in the shadow of her older sister Kate (Sofia Vasilieva). At first, Anna believed that was because of Kate's cancer. But when she discovers she was genetically engineered from birth to be a compatible donor for her sibling, Anna rebels. Hiring a lawyer (Alex Baldwin) she sues her parents (Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric) for the rights to her own body.
