Plot Summary
In this fact-based film, mistakes made by Dr. Frank Harrison (Ian Gilmour) result in the birth of a brain-damaged infant. Coral Davis (Caz Lederman), the baby's mother, wants to sue Harrison for his errors, but her husband, Doug (Bob Baines), is ashamed that his child is mentally disabled and would rather keep his family life out of the public eye.
