Joanne Winter has just graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine, ready to save the world from every disease known to man. She’s a doctor that wants to make a difference but isn’t ready to start a private practice.
She is called into her Professor’s office and given an action research project to complete; thrown onto the streets of Manchester, tasked to find out if medical drugs can cure heroin addiction. She befriends four girls on the streets and administers concentrated dopamine to one and sugar pills to the others, telling them that they are receiving only dopamine hits, setting up a controlled experiment designed to see how all the girls react and exactly who improves and who doesn’t. During the whole process, Jo learns what addiction is and how it can and can’t be cured, influencing her perspectives on treatment and the role that medicine plays.
