This episode presents a documentary about the experiences of a young doctor confronted with a succession of crises in one of the world's busiest hospitals, Bellevue Hospital in New York City. The program shows the physicians, nurses, patients, and medical students of Bellevue's emergency ward on a typical night. Dr. Martein Mulder, a 26-year-old intern, works a routine of 36 hours on duty and 8 hours off. He works at his utmost capacity on his cases, some of whom include a middle-aged man who dies from a brain injury, a patient who rejects his advice of surgery because it will leave him disabled, and a man with an acute heart attack.
