Synopsis

Go behind the doors of Oakland's Highland Hospital, a safety-net hospital fighting for survival while weathering the storm of a persistent economic downturn. Stretched to the breaking point, Highland is the primary care facility for 250,000 patients of nearly every nationality, race and religion, with 250 patients - most of them uninsured - crowding its emergency room every day.
