Heartless Bastard Jim Shankman

About the show

Barry Weiss is a hot shot broker, arrogant, smart and tough. His girlfriend Janie is his take-no-prisoners business partner. They ride the big wave of ambition and wealth, self-involved and self-satisfied. When Barry needs a new heart, he descends into a comically callous world of medically inept doctors and their hard-bitten nurses. But as he recuperates, Barry finds that everything feels wrong and he is deeply disturbed. What are these feelings, these thoughts, all these questions? When he shows up on the doorstep of the dead man’s widow, he begins a dangerous journey into the true nature of his illness and the deeper meaning of his new heart.
