A writer is touched by the story of a former Black Panther who seams to have been wrongfully convicted to life imprisonment 20 years ago. The writer decides to try to help the now middle-aged convict get exonerated.
Reminiscent of Lars von Trier's TV work, "The Kingdom," this hour-long series is set inside a prestigious hospital in Boston which is haunted by the ghosts of past medical experiments.

Two members of the cast stand out: Irma P.
