Plot Overview

Ed is critically wounded and faces the same fate as his boss - life in a wheelchair - unless the doctors at the Craig Institute can work some major magic. Unfortunately, someone does not want them to succeed: the daughter of Dr. Ritter, who is assisting doctors Craig and Hunter, has been kidnapped in order to keep him from saving Ed.
