Description

Every day the emergency care hospital receives hundreds of new patients. Each one has a clinical record with conflicts and problems behind it. Sometimes it is impossible to diagnose and prescribe treatment without revealing this information. The doctors become not just witnesses but hostages to the dramas and secrets of their patients; they help them to recover and make vital decisions.

Our characters are four doctors of an emergency care hospital. Each one has their own story about choosing medicine for career; all of them use different methods of treatment. One is totally committed to the hospital; another manages to achieve some kind of work-life balance. They are both cynical and compassionate, with their own merits and drawbacks, problems and issues. Each one is a real professional. The team includes a head doctor of the hospital, an experienced medical man and a talented manager.
These four are no superheroes, but instead they are people who are on call 24/7 to save the lives of others.
