"Society" (Part 4) follows children as they pay the price for inner-city social woes. ER social worker Gail Brodkey investigates several cases of suspected child abuse. And in the neonatal ICU, Dr. Jimmy Collins counsels teen parents about their daughter, a preemie who must spend two months in intensive care. Also: a girl with brain damage whose mother suffered a ruptured uterus. Elsewhere at Children's Memorial, a 10-year-old who was born with AIDS also has kidney failure and needs a transplant. Sherry Stringfield narrates.
