Clare Jennings is a popular, hardworking general practitioner. A perfectionist, she puts her patients and work above all else, including her psychiatrist husband, David. The arrival of Sam Curtis, a young doctor whose training Clare is responsible for adds to her already enormous workload and as they grow closer, Clare finds that her life, both professional and private is beginning to fall apart. Arguments at home, bad clinical judgements, complaints and betrayal compound Clare’s guilt and feeling of worthlessness as she spirals deeper and deeper into depression. Will she be saved before it is too late?
