David Roberts, Jack's adopted son, is an idealist, who is driven by his singular goal of becoming a pediatric heart surgeon, despite the potential government takeover of medicine. Like his father, he is compelled to follow his heart, which is filled with excitement for the future. Jack enters into his own private crusade, not only to retain his independence but to protect the profession for his son. His dogged efforts are met with stubborn resistance from those who seek total control of medicine, with surprising results.
The Conflict is a fictitious account of the struggles that occur everyday in the practice of medicine. The situations and characters are representative of common circumstances in the modern health care arena and the men and women who have dedicated their lives to providing professional care with courage and compassion.
