Consumed by his job as a home health nurse, Sam Watson is burned out and frayed. When a simple mistake turns into a fatal error for one of his patients, Sam tries to bury the truth under a facade of perfection, knowing that a lifetime of deceit is about to be exposed. Drawing on the ever-intensifying pressures in American health care as well as the many aided and victimized by that system, The Way That I Take offers a devastating look at our dangerous expectations and the corrosive lies we tell to survive.
