What do you do when you're unwell? Go to the doctor, right? So what happens when the doctors aren't helping? When they tell you they don't know what's wrong with you? That you have the strangest set of symptoms they've ever seen? That your test results look like David Lynch directed them. What then? ‘Alternative’ follows Will on his long, painful and frustrating journey to finding an answer. Stuck between a doctor new to the job, a nagging girlfriend, an infatuated fellow patient and a meddling homeopath sister, it's a battle on all fronts, and it is up to Will to decide who to trust, and at what cost.
