In the custody of a physician as sinister as they are, the Blood Brothers fill their last days feeding on the surreal stories of their fellow inmates. A wedge driven between them by the cunning Doctor Queen, the Brothers wrestle with life in Hospital One.
The execution of the Blood Brothers races closer and their captor, Doctor Queen, has vowed that she will break their minds before she destroys their bodies. So while she's away, that means exposing the boys to some of the ugliest, most rancid stories the hospital has to offer.
