In 10 years Michael Wood with his aeroplane has brought advanced surgery to primitive hospitals across the bush of East Africa. It has been an exciting and dangerous job covering an area as large as western Europe, over terrain sparsely populated and as hostile as any on earth-forests, swamps, deserts and snow-capped mountains.
It is the only feasible way to bring surgical help to the vast remote areas of underdeveloped countries. This film, shot across thousands of miles of country from north of the equator to the south of Tanzania, is about the small beginnings of an adventure, the end of which is not in sight. It is the story of a man who has everything a pioneer needs - courage, luck and unreasonable optimism.
