THE SHIFT takes place during one 12-hour night shift in an emergency room. On this night, a veteran nurse, a new nurse and their ethics are at odds. Floyd (Danny Glover) mentors the nurses as they face difficult cases and tough decisions. The veteran nurse believes in doing what is best for his patients, even if it means letting them die; the new nurse, on the other hand, believes in fighting for the patient until the very end, no matter what. Confronted with a young girl dying from cancer, beliefs are tested and actions challenged.
