As he builds his bond with his new colleagues, an experienced African doctor, a nurse with a dream and an Italian volunteer doctor, he discovers what is missing within himself. Once his one month stint finishes, he goes back to Los Angeles where his fiancée and a new dream job at the Beverly Hills medical center is waiting for him.
