At a Los Angeles medical school, a group of third-year students struggle with love, their studies and one another. Young Michael Chatham (Adrian Pasdar) is trying to live up to his father's reputation as a well-known and highly respected surgeon. He's also competing for an internship with working-class kid Kenny Rose (Jack Gwaltney), whose relentless dedication to school is damaging his marriage. Meanwhile, Chatham becomes romantically involved with another student, Gina Wyler (Diane Lane).
