EDWARD TEAK WANTS OUT. He is the CEO of a failing hospital in a dying town. When he learns that a for-profit mega-chain is interested in acquiring the hospital if its finances can be improved, Teak hatches an outlandish plan to eliminate the five most costly patients imperiling the system. While it’s nothing he’s proud of, it just might work, putting some miserable souls out of their misery, making the hospital someone else’s headache, and saving himself in the process. He’s so close; he can almost feel the cords of the promised golden parachute in his sweaty palms. But it is all unraveling. Fast. Teak’s no mastermind killer. Frankly, he’s lucky he made it this far.
Little Falls follows Teak’s darkly funny path, one marked by missteps and double-crosses. Along the way, Little Falls reveals the misplaced incentives and hypocrisies that distort American healthcare, ultimately asking how much a life is worth in a world where the bottom line always wins.
