Dr. Alex Marsden (Nigel Havers) battles with his conscience when a close friend, Larry (Lorcan Cranitch), asks him to be his heart surgeon. He’d do anything for a friend, but this time he fears that a conflict of interests could cost him his job – he is having an affair with Larry’s wife (Orla Brady). It nearly costs him even more when Larry dies.
