A group of doctors in a veteran's hospital must contend with their hopeless situation: too many patients and not enough beds. The main cause of their problems is bureaucratic belt-tightening by the hospital administrators. The doctors are determined to give the best service they can, even if that means defying the orders of management and performing unauthorized operations.Written by

Russ David (a frequent Extra for the Wright/Laird Casting Company) is the actor seen alone on center screen in the green "turtle" hat wearing a blue and brown nylon winter coat. Troy Evans walks directly in front of Russ just before the fight breaks out, with supporting actor/stuntmen Branscombe Richmond in line and Jophrey Brown in the fight scene. He can also be seen in Truman with Gary Sinese. See more »
the greatest casualty may be due to Red Tape. Not only does this film benefit from some true TALENT in the acting department, but Howard Deutch does a great job of portraying the sad state of Veteran's Care in the US. No, this does not appear to be "based on a true story," but it is typical of what goes on in the VA Hospitals; as a former Army Medic (now a Service Connected Disabled Vet) I know whereof I speak. I highly recommend this film!
