Summary
Tim Thomas was a gifted aerospace engineer with a beautiful wife. Then, while using his cell phone while driving, his car wandered across lanes and he became responsible for the deaths of 7 others, including his wife. Unable to forgive himself, Tim sets out to give 'pounds of flesh' that will give new life to seven deserving individuals to make up for the seven lives he destroyed. Tim intends to kill himself to atone for his sins. He decides to bestow gifts to seven worthy people, which includes body organs and material possessions. He personally investigates these people to verify that they are indeed the right people he should help. He plans to have his best friend see that his wishes are carried out after he is dead. Tim's plan threatens to unravel when he begins to fall in love with one of the people he is trying to help
