A unique boat offering life saving medical treatment sets sail for the poorest of the poor in Africa. The year begins at Selection Day. One day to screen thousands of hopeful people for their chance to get on the surgical lists. But for every one told 'yes', many others are told 'no'.
Can you imagine having to turn people away with illnesses no one back home would ever face? The medical staff know exactly what they could do to help the person in front of them, but nevertheless they are sometimes forced to turn them away because there simply is no way they can help them here.
The Surgery Ship is a dramatic journey as the surgeons deal with life and death cases - and balance the fates of these patients in their hands.
