Replace

After having been married for many years, Phoebe is finally pregnant. Due to her rare blood type, the risk of death during labor and delivery is high, and the doctors recommend abortion. However, Phoebe ultimately decides to ignore the doctor’s advice and continues on with the pregnancy.

Eight months into her pregnancy, tragedy strikes. During one of Phoebe’s routine walks with her husband Ethan, they encounter a person who tries to commit suicide by jumping off of a building. The jumper accidentally lands on top of Phoebe, killing both her and the baby instantly.

After the ordeal, the hospital persuades Ethan to donate Phoebe’s healthy heart since a needy patient with the same rare blood type is a perfect match for a transplant. Despite Ethan’s reluctance to sign the consent form, he goes through it anyhow, knowing this has always been Phoebe’s wish. According to law, the families of the donor are not allowed to seek the whereabouts of donated organs. However, Ethan, who misses his wife terribly, decides to look for the recipient of Phoebe’s heart. He knows he has to do it even if it means breaking the law…
