Nine-year-old Judith Thaller is severely injured after falling from a fence. She urgently needs a blood transfusion, but her parents, who belong to a special religious community that forbids medical interventions like these, reject the treatment. Dr. Klein gives the girl a transfusion anyway, and saves her life. The result: Judith's parents disown their daughter. Meanwhile, the entire hospital has learned that Dr. Klein's daughter Pam got into a fight with another girl. Nurse Nanny is working on her plan to get Dr. Lang to marry her. And Valerie finds a mysterious photo in her father's drawer, which could shake up her entire family.
