Pratt settles into his new job in Darfur but is troubled by the astounding number of people needing care. When a sheik and his pregnant wife come into the camp, Carter (former series star Noah Wyle) and Dakarai (recurring guest star Eamonn Walker) operate on the man's gunshot wound--but they are quickly interrupted by government officials trying to arrest the patient. As Carter works on delivering the woman's baby, it becomes apparent that the mother is suffering from delivery complications. Pratt and Dakarai are forced to journey at night to a nearby hospital at the risk of being stopped by armed militants. Meanwhile, Debbie (recurring guest star Mary McCormack) tries to convince Dakarai to seek proper treatment for his medical condition.
