At the Great Ormond Street Hospital, Drs. Martin Elliott and Victor Tsang perform advanced surgery not carried out elsewhere in the U.K. This film follows the stories of four children as the doctors attempt to save their lives: the parents of 8-month-old Aicha, who is given only a few months to live, convince the team to reconsider its decision to avoid further treatment; the parents of 8-month-old Natalie are offered surgery that might save their daughter's life, but the procedure has never been tried before; 9-year-old Bryan has had several heart operations, and a high-risk heart transplant is all that's left for him; and the parents of 2-day-old Blessing must decide whether to agree to a perilous operation on their daughter.
