Abraham Verghese (Andrews) is an Indian immigrant who becomes the head of infectious diseases at the rural Johnson City, Tennessee hospital, where he had interned, in 1985. Considered an outsider, the doctor also finds himself dealing with the area's first AIDS cases, and his patients who are discriminated against. In fact, Verghese becomes so obsessed with their care that he neglects his own wife and children. Based on Verghese's memoirs.
