A 12-year-old boy with a failing heart has only one hope for survival—an experimental transplant from a specially bred pig. This BBC movie is often emotionally compelling: Cameron makes a video for his unborn sibling, not knowing if he'll ever get a chance to see him, and a suspenseful scene in which he sneaks into the lab to inspect the pig that might give him its heart is true to a child's desire to see things for himself. But other times the plot construction is manipulative, and Kate Cheeseman's direction rarely goes beyond workmanlike storytelling. 104 min.
