Vincent Lam | Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures | IntroductionOne character is hired by an insurance company that sends planes into foreign countries to bring back the injured, the dead, or the nearly dead.

He presents an interconnected web of patients and doctors — the damaged and those barely keeping it together to care for them. There is Fitzgerald, the young doctor who cannot stop his drinking habit from taking over his life, and Chen, called upon to ease his elderly grandfather toward death.
