Dr. Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is an ambitious young doctor, eager to impress his superiors and colleagues - Chief Resident Waylans (Rob Morrow), self-assured fellow intern Dan (Troy Garity) and no-nonsense nurse Theresa (Taraji P. Henson) – but things are not going his way and he can't seem to shake off his insecurities. When 18-year-old Diane (Riley Keough) is admitted to the hospital for a kidney infection, Martin gets the boost of self-esteem he has been craving when he is able to quickly diagnose and begin treating her condition. However, his enthusiasm for his work and interest in his new patient quickly veer into inappropriate territory when he starts to develop romantic feelings for Diane.

As her health improves, Martin fears losing her and quickly loses sight of hismedical ethics. When orderly Jimmy (Michael Peña) discovers the doctor's budding relationship with his young patient and uses it to his own advantage, things really start to get out ofhand. Martin is no longer just fighting for respect, but his reputation and career.
