Finally a medical drama from the patient’s perspective.
This ensemble series follows a pilot project support group for people with life threatening illnesses co-run by a medical doctor and a naturopath. Comprised of a diverse group of opinionated patients (who face strong prejudice from friends and family for their lifestyle and treatment choices) they learn to respect each other even when they vehemently disagree with each other’s beliefs.
This timely show demonstrates the universal struggle between accepting or controlling other people’s lives. It asks how do we learn to truly respect other people’s right to make their own choices even if we believe they are doomed to fail? How do we realistically put into practice treating others as we wish to be treated?
