Plot & Details

On her 16th birthday, Darcy Deeton (Danielle Panabaker) continues to grieve over her beloved brother David (Billy Aaron Brown), who had been killed in a freak car accident exactly one year earlier. Desperate for "closure", Darcy joins her friend Sam (Ricky Ullman) on a cross-country journey to locate the person who received David's heart in a transplant operation. Hoping that the new heart will have "transformed" the recipient, Darcy is in for a major disappointment--or so it seems. Meanwhile, she must also deal with serious issues involving David's girlfriend Jayne (Corri English), who holds Darcy responsible for his death. Based on a book by Cherie Bennett, Searching for David' Heart first aired November 21, 2004 on the ABC Family Channel, and subsequently was the winner of the prestigious Humanitas Prize.
