Each day and night,in a race against time, a group of medical interns and residents attempt to help their patients triumph illness and death. However, what is the real mission of these future doctors and what can be mastered in the end?
Graduating neurosurgery resident, Cheung Yat Kin (Kenneth Ma) was intent on sending his disabled younger brother to study overseas. Thus, Yat Kin concentrated on work to earn money and neglected his own love life until he met medical intern, Fan Zi Yu (Tavia Yang), who possessed the same passion in medical studies. Zi Yu came from a family of famous doctors. Strongly attracted by Yat Kin’s abilities and personality, Zi Yu took the initiative to pursue him.
While Yat Kin was still hesitant, the sudden death of his brother led to Yat Kin’s drastic change in temperament. The staff of the entire hospital, including a group of new interns, such as Yeung Pui Chung (Him Law) and Zi Yu’s younger sister, Kong Mei Shuet (Mandy Wong) respected Yat Kin greatly. During Yat Kin’s lowest point, Zi Yu was diagnosed with a serious illness….
Jayne: I look forward to Kenneth and Tavia’s partnership, but the plot does not sound too original. Since Kenneth is a neurosurgeon, will Tavia’s character have a brain tumor? Will Kenneth need to put aside his grief for his brother in order to operate on Tavia and save the love of his life? Will their romantic survive the cruel fate of life or will medical skill and science triumph in the end?
