Jack has never been to one of the peerage's meetings before. Trembling, he stands to address the world's most acclaimed medical men, looking into their jaded, tired eyes, telling them of how he's lost a friend to a faulty diagnosis. He listens as they pour their knowledge and cynicism into the case. But when the sun rises and they have arrived at their tardy consensus, Jack leaps from his chair with a secret to share and a deception to confess. In the moments that follow, light and battle reignite in aged eyes and a group of geniuses rediscovers the magic of medicine.
