I resented you deeply. I trusted you beyond reason.

Dominic is a talented neurosurgeon, a devout Catholic, and a devoted husband to his wife Cathy, with whom he is expecting his first child. But his idealism is tested when he reunites with Emily, an old medical school colleague whose daughter Felicity has recently been diagnosed with cancer. As he oversees Felicity's case, Dom feels the carefully drawn lines between his personal and professional identities begin to dissolve. Doctor, parent, sceptic, patient – an operating theatre becomes a Church becomes a home. Where is that faith owed to a God and to a girl; to his family and to his patients — and where is that faith owed to himself?
