Lonesome first-year medical resident Dr. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom
) is eager to impress his superiors, but a few missteps set him back, igniting his hidden insecurities. When he finally gets the respect he so desperately craves from an enchanting teenage patient - Diane (Riley Keough
), who is admitted with a kidney infection - he'll do anything to keep her under his care.
But when the chief resident finally takes notice of him, Martin can't seem to catch a break: The head nurse has it in for him, and orderly Jimmy (Michael Peña) discovers Martin's secret budding relationship with Diane and blackmails him for prescription painkillers. Soon a desperate and paranoid Martin is no longer just fighting for respect, but also for his reputation and career.
