My Sister's Keeper

My Sister's Keeper Conceived by means of in vitro fertilization, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin) was brought into the world to be a genetic match for her older sister, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), who suffers from acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Because of her sister's dependency on her, Anna is unable to live the life she wants as she is constantly in and out of the hospital. When Kate turns 13 she goes into renal failure.

Knowing that she will have to donate one of her kidneys to her sister, Anna sues her parents for medical emancipation and the rights to her own body. Attorney Campbell Alexander (Alec Baldwin) agrees to work for Anna pro bono.

The film is interlaced with flashbacks that detail the strong relationship between Kate and Anna, as well as how Kate's illness has affected her siblings' lives. Based on the Jodi Picoult book of the same name.
