Follow a team of Australian doctors and nurses on board a unique ship in West Africa. This floating hospital will face the most severe medical issues, long since eradicated in most parts of the world. Out on the ocean, the surgery ship carries life-saving medical services for people who have none: children who suffer with terrible leg deformities, women outcast from their communities by birthing fistulas, vast tumors of all shapes and sizes which afflict the unlucky.
