Health Secretary Dr. Eduardo Suárez vehemently opposes the new health reform proposed by the Governor; at the same time, his wife begins to show signs of early-onset Alzheimer’s. Forced to resign his post, Suárez begins to take care of his wife at the expense of his own well-being as he watches from the sidelines how an investigation on government corruption threatens to bring down the current administration.
