Art & Artifact
Behind the lead-lined doors of the Radiology Department of All Saints Hospital, most x-ray technologists toil to provide the best possible patient care and patient imaging. Most, that is, but not all. Coming from half a world away, Tesfaye Ababa feels every mile of it while he strives to fit in. But fitting in becomes secondary to just getting through a workday as a new x-ray tech. From impatient surgeons to hysterical patients, each day brings new challenges. Follow Tesfaye through the chaotic corridors of All Saints Emergency Department during a crisis that strains everyone's capabilities - but especially the Radiology staff. Look over Tesfaye's shoulders as he positions patients, reveals anatomy and uncovers secret CT scans. Now he faces questions more ancient than his homeland of Ethiopia. When do you accept what goes on around you? When do you simply walk away? And when do you do all that you can to stop the mistreatment of others?
