Saint Justin's Hospital, an historic London sanctuary faces extinction by developers. A handful of staff act out their emotional and professional lives. Love affairs are a mix of folly, fantasy and fulfilment. Personalities blend or clash, strengths and weaknesses under the microscope. Sophie Maguire is a single mum and dedicated theatre nurse. Engaged to be married she thinks she is secure. Christopher Jones, Sophie's fiance, is senior trainee and close to the top of the ladder. Mark Swift is a younger trainee and currently star of the research lab. Senior Surgeon Montague Scott thinks he has it all. But there are storms ahead for him and his beautiful wife Rachel. Digby Morton, elderly physician sits on a surgical time-bomb. Melissa, theatre manager is a peacemaker and Sophie's best friend. Jeremy Davenport, freshly qualified, is a house-surgeon and wishes he were anywhere else. A new Professor throws spanners in everyone's works, and conducts an affair with his secretary ignoring his wife, an opera singer who has lost her voice. The CEO of the Development Corporation bursts an ulcer at a critical time.
A billionaire octogenarian heart patient has something to say before he passes on, something to affect them all and change the face of London's history. Friendship, forgiveness, redemption and luck play their part. Pieces that have flown apart begin to fit together.
