Drug-addicted attorney Mike and his business partner Paul take on a case involving an emergency room nurse who has been pricked by an infected needle. Uncovering a web of corporate conspiracies, Mike and Paul quickly find themselves outmatched.

A very smart movie on how politics are influenced by multinationals, somehow to the benefit of themselves, without counting good sense. In other word, it shows how frustrating the system is, how difficult it is to tackle it, and almost impossible to change as an individual. The movie is perfectly acted, shows the insights of the hospital system, the lobbying. This is a feel good movie, but from it, you can deduce easily that there are so many cases that are much darker. And even in that case, till today, plastic needles are reused in third world countries and in the US, a large amount of hospital haven't changed their needles for the retractable safety needle, there are still a lot of work to be done.
