Off the Map Season 1, Episode 1: “Saved by the Great White Hope,” Synopsis
In the Off the Map premiere, "Saved by the Great White Hope," idealistic young Dr. Lily Brenner, along with fellow doctors Mina Minard and Tommy Fuller, arrive in "la ciudad de las estrellas" (the city of stars), a tiny town in the South American jungle which has one under-stocked and undermanned medical clinic. All of these young doctors have personal demons, but they aren't the only ones with emotional baggage. They're introduced to the legendary and mysterious Ben Keeton, who walked away from a prestigious position as Chief of Surgery at UCLA to found the clinic. With his right-hand doctor, Otis Cole, the enigmatic Dr. Ryan Clark, and local doctor Zita Alvarez, Keeton will teach the newcomers how to save lives in the most challenging of environments — while taking them on adventures of a lifetime.
