At the latest, I saw this movie in January of 2008 on TV. I'll describe what I remember and see if it rings any bells.

There were three adult men, including what I believe to be a father and a son. The adult son has been critically injured, so the two other men hold a clinic hostage. The third man in the group is volatile and even goes so far as to try and rape one of the female doctors, when the son flat-lines.

The doctor cannot save the son, but the hostages hide this by putting a heart monitor in their coat pocket.

The volatile man eventually notices this and attempts to shoot the man who put it in his pocket. The doctor shoots the volatile man, who falls to the ground, unconscious. The doctor immediately takes a scalpel, opens him up, then she slides her hand in and tries to restart his heart.

I don't remember anything beyond this. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

EDIT #1: To answer's Walt's questions, here's what I remember: I am pretty sure it was American, the production value was good and I watched it inside a hotel in Grangeville, Idaho. The rape scene had the man pushing the doctor's back against a shelf in the operating room, where she huffs and when the patient flatlines, she pushes her would-be rapist out of the way to try to resuscitate the man's heart, saying something like, "I don't have time for this."

EDIT #2: It is possible that the film involves two brothers, instead of a father and son.

  • Could it possibly be John Q. I have not watched the movie, but I heard that the plot has something to which dad taking clinic/hospital hostage. – ChickenWing24 May 2 '15 at 6:58

    How about The Clinic - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clinic_(TV_series)#Season_7 – ChickenWing24 May 2 '15 at 7:07

    Check out Season 7 Episode 8 of The Clinic. It's the final episode where something similar to what you described happened. Can't find any of the episodes online though. – ChickenWing24 May 2 '15 at 15:28

    Thanks. This is all vaguely familiar, esp. the 3 archetypes (though I'm picturing a wounded younger brother, his older caring brother and their loose cannon accomplice), but this is unfortunately a very common plot (esp. in medical dramas), so I just can't place it. :( – Walt May 3 '15 at 8:32

    Could you say anything more? Was it an old or newish movie/show (e.g. the quality of 80s/90s/2000s production differs hugely). Any famous actors? What did the main actor look like (skin color, hair, etc.). Furthermore, are you sure it was rape, and not just intimidating the doctor? – Glenn Jul 5 '15 at 18:50

It's an episode from Chicago Hope but it's a grocery store instead of clinic.

The episode is The Day of the Rope

White supremacists on the run following a failed assasination attempt against the President, hole up in a grocery store with an injured member, and demand a doctor from Chicago Hope to treat him.

First aired: 1/20/97

    15 hours until I can award you. Yes, you did it! The dialogue was pretty similar, but I must have mistook the rebel threatening the woman for rape. Perhaps it was because I was a teenager and misconstrued the sexual overtones? – DarthBotto Dec 31 '15 at 12:28

I think it pretty much sounds The clinic S07E08. You can read summary of this episode here.

    There are several similarities. However, that episode aired in November of 2009, while I saw the episode in January of 2008. – DarthBotto May 4 '15 at 7:40
  • @DarthBotto what are the dissimilarities? – Mari-Lou A Dec 31 '15 at 12:03
