The medical centre and the life of Dr Raj Patel are sent into turmoil when the unvaccinated child dies, of whooping cough, in the doctor's arms. When Raj is charged with medical misconduct; friends, family, doctors and nurses are forced to take sides. Couples and their children are caught in the crossfire.

It brings to vivid life questions of parenting, the rights of children, race, class, sexuality and the different perspectives of men and women. It explores the one question on every parents lips. Will it harm my child? Will you choose to Jab or not, but more importantly, how will you feel about those who do the opposite?
