Ethical conflicts erupt for doctors as the Australian government overrides their clinical decisions for refugees. What happens to their medical ethics? What happens to their patients? This documentary exposes a medical system where the best interest of refugee patients is not at play and doctors fight back against this. The government says their offshore deterrence system protecting Australian borders will fall apart with the recent passing of the Urgent Medical Transfer Bill. How will this conflict be resolved when many lives are at stake?
Medical ethics is at the core of this powerful film as it lifts the lid on this issue by getting behind hospital doors and hearing first hand from the clinicians. The film will educate Australians and remind health practitioners of the ethics they must follow.
