Anesthesiologist Dr. Kate Downey is having a tough year. When she learns of her elderly patients dying at home after minor surgery, she wants to know why, but the surgeon, not so much. When she presses, he blames her.
Unfortunately the chief of staff sides with the surgeon, leaving Kate desperate to prove her innocence. With her husband in a coma, her career is all she has left, except for her eccentric Great Aunt Irm, who moved in after her husband’s accident, and her beloved black Lab, Shadow.
As she begins to investigate, a medical student and the lawyer son of a victim, help, but things heat up as they close in on the culprit’s identity and the stakes couldn’t be higher when Kate has to make some excruciating choices.
It brings up issues related to how we manage the end of life, and hopefully will stimulate conversation amongst family members to make their wishes known.
