This is a compelling story of two medics on the front line. When old friends Jack and Tom volunteer for the army medical corps, both men are unaware that their lives are about to change forever. Jack is a first-class vascular surgeon with a strong sense of duty to his country, and Tom a highly respected anaesthetist with a young child. Given 48 hours to deploy, they leave behind their comfortable lives - and the petty rivalries and mindless bureaucracy of the Victoria Hospital - for a war zone where their emotional and psychological strength will be tested to the limit. Will they both return? And if so, will they be able to take up their lives where they left off?
