This TV movie is the pure product of what the late sixties and early seventies gave the audiences, where hospital movies have already begun to emerge: see for instance ERMERGENCY series starring Julie London and I forget many other films, TV movies or TV shows; and the early seventies where also the disaster movie genre began, with the famous AIRPORT series for the big screen. This TV film is nearly the very same scheme as AIRPORT, but taking place in a hospital rather aboard a plane. A feature where the story emphasizes on character's performances, colliding fates in a hospital, where surgeons, doctors, nurses and patients meet together whilst a cholera plague has to be fought. We watch here the character study and also the daily burden of the hospital crew to heal and manage the whole "ship" against the disaster plague.
A good movie made for TV by Sean Penn's father.
