Summary
Dr. Werner Ernst, an overworked intern, only wants what is best for his elderly, comatose patient -- until he falls for the ailing man's beautiful daughter who has ten million reasons to let her father "die with dignity," while her deeply religious sister has her own motives for keeping him alive. Caught between passion and duty, Werner descends into a moral mine field where he struggles with the physician's god-like powers of life and death
