Take out a prescription for non-stop laughter with a wild and wacky farce that is guaranteed to leave you in stitches!

A renowned neurologist’s indiscreet past, in the form of a son from a secret fling, catches up with him as he prepares to deliver a career-boosting speech. Little white lies turn into whoppers as the doctor embarks on an uproarious journey filled with twists and turns in order to save his precious reputation.

Watch with glee as an assortment of bizarre characters transform the sedate St. Andrews Hospital into a madhouse of lunacy. Frantic, funny and completely outrageous, this rib-tickling farce proves once and for all that laughter truly is the best medicine.
