John Q Archibald (Denzel Washington) is a Chicago factory worker struggling to make ends meet. When his son Michael is rushed to hospital after having a seizure at a baseball game, the doctors say the boy must receive a heart transplant as soon as possible.

As the police gather outside and hostage negotiator Frank Grimes (Robert Duvall) attempts to diffuse the situation, the media begin an in-depth coverage of the siege and in the process turn John into a modern-day folk hero.
