Doctor Lipton is shocked when her close friend is strangled by an elderly patient. Before she has a chance to investigate, the killer himself dies in a mysterious accident. Probing further, Melissa deduces that the hospital administrators are hiding something from her. She is right: there is a conspiracy in the making, and it is all traceable to a new organ-donor program.
