A classic tale of good against evil pits nurse against consultant and working-class woman against upper-middle-class man. Joy is a nurse who enjoys life and finds the best in everyone. For her, the hospital is a chaotic, exciting landscape of work and play where everyone has a story to tell. For Mr. Jeffries, the consultant, however, the patients and the staff are all tarred with the same brush – an ignorant, lazy, drunken, violent, drug-crazed rabble. White trash. Arrogant and elitist, Jeffries hankers after a class system that has gone – but that he wants re-established. When Joy becomes suspicious about the death of a patient, a clash between the two becomes inevitable.
