A collision between a passenger bus and military convoy results in several injuries being brought to the Role 3 Hospital. Captain Bobby Trang treats a badly burned woman. His assessment of her chances for survival runs counter to Cmdr. Will Royal's expert eye. Will believes the woman won't make it and petitions to Colonel Marks to let her die rather than spend nursing resources on trying to keep her alive. But Colonel Marks and Major Rebecca Gordon both back Bobby's decision. This causes a rift between the doctors and nurses as Bobby and Rebecca keep vigil over their patient. Will's also distracted by one of the patients, a young boy (AREF) who attaches himself to Will, following him around like a puppy. And Major Grace Pedersen is presented with a challenging patient; a young man who takes masturbation to a whole new level.
