On the day after his fortieth birthday, the family man and computer analyst George Grieves goes to the Mt. Abaddon Hospital for a routine procedure of colonoscopy with Dr. Sharazi. Along his birthday party, his friends and family tell many cases of medical errors, and George is worried about. After the surgery, George finds that his surgery had complications because of a homonymous patient, and he had received a thoracoscopic sympathectomy instead. While interned, George discloses bizarre and dark secrets about the East Wing of the hospital while his wife and family have to take a decision about his fate. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


Joe Manganiello was originally cast in the part of the spiritual exorcist "Friar Lazaro Mate." But he was recast when he had to cut his long hair and shave his beard to reprise his role as "Flash Thompson" in Spider-Man 3 (2007). (NOTE: He did shoot a day on the film and appears briefly in the hallway scene performing a breast augmentation.) See more »

This is awesome
28 September 2007 | by DeianBachinSee all my reviews

I don't speak English to good but i couldn't

"walk away" not commenting this movie. I really don't understand the people that gave a bad review as 1 example, did u watched it?did u understand it? It made me shake at every perspective am moment of this film, almost cried, and remembered how precious is this life. Not a good idea \commenter arranger but only have 2 words It's perfect ! It has worth every minutes of my life to watch this. There was another spectaculos movie like this one called The Jacket.Thats almost the same type as this one. People watch it again...until you get something out of it. I am lacking word now,don't really know what to write anymore,just wanted to share my opinion and my thought's with u. Best regards Deian. Keep watching movies.
