Since 6 years the German Dr. Frank Hofmann is doctor and manager in an hospital on the Philippine Islands. This soap depicts his and his co-workers lives and loves and small excitements, set up in a beautiful landscape. When the French lawyer Valentine learns about Hofmann's whereabout from a newspaper article, he takes the next plane to take bloody revenge - he believes Hofmann's incompetence was the cause his wife and child had to die several years ago.

This could just as well have been an American tv-movie, the characters are very similar to those of US-soaps about doctors, patients and their relationships. It's fun to see former "Winnetou" Pierre Brice in one of his sporadic later appearances (he talks German, that's great!). The story is not too realistic but there is certainly some excitement and a lot of sentiment: the part in which Dr. Hofmann loses his Chinese girlfriend as she has cancer is really touching when he tries to save her from death, but every time I ask myself: "Why don't men ever REALLY cry in movies?(you almost never see tears with them)". Nevertheless, the scene is very emotional and well played, I nearly cried myself!
