As a result of capacity overload an accident occurs in a Prague private hospital. The patient almost dies. A group of nurses resigns in support of a colleague, whom management makes responsible for the situation. Their superior, head nurse Hana, realizes that this gesture could lead to the collapse of the entire hospital, which is already suffering from a long-term shortage of staff. In one day, the nurses must be persuaded to withdraw their resignations. To do this, Hana will have to cross her own moral boundaries in an environment where solving a problem often means creating a new one. Eventually, she has to ask herself if it all was worth it.
