This short film addresses the issue of heart disease and diet, especially re-occurring heart disease due to poor diet. The film is set in a hospital cafeteria and angel nurses attempt to improve patients’ diets. The central character is a man who keeps on returning for further heart operations. An angel nurse tries to persuade him to order a healthy meal, but he persists with hamburgers and chips. Exhausted and worn down by successive operations the man finally agrees to change his ways and embrace life, upon which he escapes from the revolving door of medical intervention.
