The trauma of medical school and residency provides the fodder for this story of the lives of a few students on their way to becoming doctors. One student's girlfriend is crippled because of a botched abortion, and he fights an emotional breakdown in order to stick with his training and finish. A female student suffers her own demons and kills herself as other students go through struggles of various kinds that eventually cause them to drop out. Based on this movie, medical school might need a warning label that it is dangerous to one's health if taken in large doses.
