DR. CASTILLO is a fine man of high merit and bravery, most of all a sympathy for his fellow man. Doctor Castillo immigrated from the Philippines ten years ago. He practiced fifteen years as a Doctor in the Philippine. He has treated thousands of patients.
Dr. Castillo can’t perform medicine in USA because US laws require to pass some very difficult exams. He passed most but not the last exam. His marriage broke. His ex-wife took two kids and everything else from him. After his divorce, he is left with no money and tries to live in a storage locker to save money for the chance to reconstruct his life.
Doctor Castillo tries to help others without health insurance by offering prescriptions for Mexican Pharmacies just over the border in Tijuana. The plan backfires when the people he helps are followed by US Health and Human Services Authorities. Investigators catch Doctor Castillo when he is fingered as the ringleader by one of the people he tried to help.
