It might be tangential, but I’m reminded of that movie after watching “Broken City”. Mainly because they both run through all the same elements.

It seems the hospital proper was tired of the homeless curling up on gurneys to rest so they dumped the latest one off for the Billy Barnes Ward to deal with.
