A man wakes up during open heart surgery as a result of a failed anesthetic, paralyzed while high drama plays out around him.

Clay Beresford is a young man with his fair share of demons, entertaining an illicit affair with his mother's secretary as he goes about building a reputation as a financial guru. Clay requires open heart surgery to repair a medical condition, operated on by friend Jack Harper despite his mother's desire for noted doctor Jonathan Neyer to perform the procedure. Clay suffers through an episode of "anesthetic awareness" during his surgery, aware of his surroundings yet paralyzed as drama concerning his mother and his decision to marry her secretary plays out around him.
