This docu-series delves into the lives of caregivers and the cutting edge medical cases they confront. The personal stories of doctors, nurses, and patients are interwoven together to give viewers a sense of the real-life drama that goes on inside America's hospitals -- from the young resident in crisis doubting that she's good enough to become a Harvard-trained doctor to the deployed soldier's pregnant wife praying for a miracle surgery to save her baby.
Filmed over four months at Massachusetts General, Brigham and Women's, and Children's Hospital Boston, this series breaks new ground in the documentary landscape. Episodes include the story of a charismatic Hollywood producer that, through a twist of fate, has his face transplanted onto a Vietnam veteran badly scarred in an accident. The second face transplant performed in this country and the first anywhere to be so extensively filmed, this operation involved two dozen surgeons and up to a hundred additional doctors and nurses.
