The first three episodes of Monster are like a roller-coaster ride. Dr. Tenma, a Japanese doctor working in Germany is moving up the ranks. He is the Director’s favorite and is engaged to his daughter – he’s also head of surgery. Life is going good until one night a boy is brought in who’s been shot in the head and can only be saved by Tenma just before the mayor is brought in after a heart attack. Tenma goes against orders to help the parentless child who came in first, and the mayor ends up dying. Shit hits the fan.
