Foundation House Officer 2

Sensitive idealist Penny Valentine went into medicine to make people’s lives better and this doctor truly believes she can make a difference. Not as naturally gifted as her brother, Penny has had to work hard to get where she is, often allowing self-doubt and emotional attachment to cloud her clinical judgment. This wide-eyed naïf is desperate to believe that the world is an inherently good place, but will the life or death stakes of her job threaten to shatter her long-held illusion?
