Repo Men is a 2010 American-Canadian science fiction action-thriller film directed by Miguel Sapochnik, and starring Jude Law and Forest Whitaker. It is based on the novel The Repossession Mambo by Eric Garcia. In 2025, a corporation called "The Union" has perfected bio-mechanical organs to replace the failed organs. If a customer falls behind on payments, a "repo man" reclaims the artificial organ (artiforg) from the body; the procedure frequently results in death. Remy and his partner Jake Freivald are considered the best of the Union's repo men. His livelihood causes issues between Remy and his wife, Carol. Attempting to save his marriage by transferring to sales, Jake tells Remy that his last job should be a cardiac repossession. The repo requires the use of a defibrillator. The device malfunctions, and Remy is severely injured, requiring replacement of his heart with an artiforg.
