Exhausted doctor battles with cholera outbreak. Columbian drug smuggling is thrown in for added excitement. So what is missing from this Canadian production? If you are looking to be entertained, this film is not for you. If you are interested in public health problems and the way in which hospitals fight cholera epidemics then this film might prove informative. It's likely you'll cancel your plane flight in the near future. The film is more of an educational documentary. A little love interest is thrown in towards the end when the disease strikes the doctor's family and effectively reunites them after family problems. The film lacks any kind of relief from the constant admission of hospital patients and a frustrated doctor devoid of sleep. In a word, hospital procedures (stimulation of heart muscle with hypodermic needles and electric shock) are not the basis for a good night's entertainment.
