A conscientious driven doctor is determined to be accepted by her peers and wields the power of medicine to get it, but the line of “do no harm” is blurred as she struggles to retain a single shred of her soul.
Overview - Drawing from my personal medical experience with burnout, this is a story that needs to be told but is often swept under the rug in today’s profit driven US healthcare system. Physician suicide is a public health crisis with approximately 400 physicians lost to suicide per year, more than any other profession—likely to be worsened by COVID. The feature Eat What You Kill is a scathing social medical drama, focused on the politics, competition, and greed of the US healthcare system, with a fantastic main character, Dr Soni Shah. Her story is a similar one that we have all seen recently unfold-- the beginnings of America's current opioid epidemic but from the unique perspective of a young malleable doctor, who ultimately realizes that belonging to the right ‘tribe’ is more important than simply fitting in.
