Complications | 2015
Dr. John Ellis is starting to feel the strain of his ER job, particularly since he's realized that it's mostly stitching up minor injuries or administering pain meds to addicts who come in with fake backaches and migraines--no chance for him to be the hero doctor he once imagined. Happily married to Samantha and the father of 6 year old Oliver, John's life and priorities change when he tends to a wounded Hispanic boy, Mauricio Hernandez, shot in the street after a drive-by shooting, and ends up shooting and killing the shooter himself. John discovers that his mandate to "first do no harm" takes on new meaning as he dispenses with the b.s. of ordinary ER life and goes to extraordinary lengths to keep the gang-related Mauricio alive-- only to find that he and his family might now be at risk.
