When Laszlo, a middle aged man and professional Skydiver, arrives at All Saints after a skydiving accident, the team are expecting the worst. It soon transpires that Mike has a very dim view of skydivers, and the deliberate dangers they submit themselves to. But when Mike discovers Laszlo, like himself, was born to European, post WWII immigrants, is also unmarried and is as single mindedly focused on his profession, he begins to feel a bond to the man. Laszlo believes that he has almost complete control over his destiny, but when things take an alarming turn for the worse medically, he is forced to put his trust in Mike.
Tom is a twenty five year old man, whose only real hope of recovery is a stem cell transplant from a sibling. Trouble is, the man was adopted out at birth and has had no luck in making contact with his birth parents, who are still together with a new family. Von volunteers to act on his behalf, but things are more complicated than any of them realise. And the result could tear a family apart as well as spell a death sentence for the patient.
Jack treats a forty something woman who refuses to accept that the chest pains she has been suffering are probably heart related.

When it becomes apparent that the woman is a tough nut to crack, it's time to bring in the big guns. Will Frank have better luck making the woman see sense? Or is she too ensconced in denial to see the truth?
