Grant has shed his stumbling, bumbling screen persona to play Dr. Guy Luthan, an intelligent, dedicated neurologist who suspects foul play when he treats a homeless man with odd maladies. When Luthan reports his suspicions to his superior, he is ordered to drop the issue. He doesn't, and the trail leads to Dr. Laurence Myrick (Hackman), a Nobel Prize-winning physician who is using the homeless in deadly experiments. It's refreshing to see Grant test his acting range a bit.
