Playing God - Movie Synopsis & Plot
Stripped of his medical license after performing an operation while high on amphetamines, Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Eugene Sands (DAVID DUCHOVNY) abandons his career, and finds himself crossing paths with a ruthless criminal, Raymond Blossom (TIMOTHY HUTTON). Raymond hires Eugene as his "gunshot doctor," to treat associates who cannot risk visiting a hospital. Lured deeper and deeper into the dangerous underworld and growing too close to Raymond's seductive girlfriend Claire (ANGELINA JOLIE), Eugene is faced with his most challenging decision - to continue a life on the run or face his demons and regain control of his destiny.
A cutting-edge crime thriller, Touchstone Pictures' "Playing God" brings to full boil a potent battle of good and evil, life and death, passion and deception in a world where nothing is as it seems and no one can escape without paying the highest price imaginable.
