Lent Week 6 to Week 7
The God Committee: anonymous citizens tasked with deciding who will live and who will die.
From the trenches to the 60s to the halls of an impossible ward, old man Oliver and teenage Emily await their fates together. But the ghosts of Oliver's pasts are catching up to him, and under the eye of the God Committee and the mysterious Nurse Nightingale, there is nowhere left to run.
Inspired by true events in Seattle's Hospitals, The God Committee examines the fractured heart of healthcare, and how our age of aggression and austerity is leaving no winners on any rung of the collapsing ladder.
