‘I mean, where does a person begin and end, and when did they stop being a person?’
When the unidentified body of a young man with fatal head injuries is found face down in the street, police have to establish who he is and where he has come from. With no ID or clues on his body, pathologists have to piece together the case (and the body) to discover the true identity of the man known only as John Doe.
