A functional alcoholic yet gifted American doctor is kidnapped and taken to Europe, where his medical skills will be tested like never before.
Dr. Tseng is used to hangovers, but this is on a whole other level. The hard-drinking, pill-popping doctor may be a medical genius, but even he can’t figure out what’s going on when wakes up and finds himself imprisoned in a basement cell. Alongside him are three misfit doctors, each of whom is trying to escape from something.
Dr Liz is cool, confident and sassy, and is not afraid to use her looks to seduce and manipulate men. Tseng is quick to objectify her – his misogyny is the defense mechanism that he falls into when faced with an attractive woman. The whisky and drugs don’t help. But through the tension, an attraction blossoms that will soften Tseng, and help Liz get in touch with the thing that made her become a doctor in the first place: the urge to heal.
Dr. Greg is frail and appears physically ill. He’s hiding something, but he won’t be able to fool Dr. Tseng for long. A shy but cunning pharmacist and doctor, his natural personality as a peacemaker is tested like never before in the high risk, combative new world that he has been thrown into.
Dr Chris is physically formidable. A series of missteps in his personal and professional life saw him forced to use his hands for fighting, not healing. Arrogant, headstrong and with a short fuse, he immediately clashes with Dr Tseng. His anger is fueled by jealousy. He wishes that Liz would look at him the way she looks at Tseng, and that Dr Greg would show him the same level of respect
Jeff has known Tseng all his life. Wise, confident and secretive, he fights hard to hold the nascent team together as they escape assassins, diagnose patients, and get ever closer to unraveling the mysterious and sinister plot which threatens everyone they know. His greatest fear is that Tseng may never truly recover from his haunting past and become the doctor he once was.
This is Dr Tseng’s journey to solve the mysteries of his past and become the man he was born to be. And if he stays sober long enough, he may just save not only his new colleagues, but also the millions of lives that are now threatened by a ruthless criminal organization.
