Steven, a charismatic surgeon, is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister.
Steven , an eminent cardiothoracic surgeon is married to Anna, a respected ophthalmologist. They are well off and live a happy and healthy family life with their two children, Kim, 14 and Bob, 12. Steven has formed a friendship with Martin, a fatherless 16-year-old boy whom he has taken under his wing.
