A Change Of Heart (Presented by: American Airlines)
Presented by Estefan Enterprises
Directed by Kenny Ortega
Frustrated with the cards life has dealt him and the product of circumstances that have driven him to fear diversity, Hank (Jim Belushi) finds himself at odds with the diversifying demographics of his central Florida town. After suffering a heart attack, Hank is given a chance at survival- but will he accept the heart of a Puerto Rican drag queen?
Playing on the literal and symbolic weight of the organs of the human body, this touching film conveys a story necessary to today’s America, reminding us that even those most set in their ways can learn to embrace difference, accept love, and move on with life.
