Filmed in the war-zones of Liberia and Congo with unprecedented access to the field operations of Doctors Without Borders/ Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), the film follows four volunteer doctors as they provide emergency medical care under extreme conditions. Two new recruits: a 26 year-old Australian doctor in a remote bush clinic and an American surgeon in a shattered capital city. Two experienced field hands: a dynamic Head of Mission trying to keep morale high and tensions under control, and an exhausted veteran, who wants out. Their ideals, perspectives, and motives are transformed over time by their lives spent in the field, a journey that challenges and shapes a person's views. Each volunteer must confront the work and the limits of their own idealism. It is not a pretty film about heroes or heroines. It is about the reality of aid work: blood and sweat, tough decisions and hard consequences, laughter and tears, cigarettes and beer, arguments and all.
