The Tell-Tale Heart is a 2009 dramatic thriller directed by Michael Cuesta. The film is based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story of the same name. In this film, a husband in Providence is brutally murdered. As a result, his organs are donated. The donated heart goes to single dad, Terry Bernard (Josh Lucas), who is caring for his young terminally ill daughter. Soon after recovering from the transplant surgery, Terry begins to have memories that aren't his. At first confused by the the very clear memory flashes, Terry thinks he is going crazy. Soon, he realizes the memories must be his donor's. Unsure what he should do with the information he is seeing, Terry decides to do some investigating. His investigation uncovers details the police would be interested in, but how does he relay this information without seeming insane? What will Terry do with the murder details in his head?
