A Sacrificial Justice
Marcy McClellan, the newest medical anthropologist at the prestigious Anders University, is on the verge of her highest career achievement: earning one of the coveted National Institute of Health’s grants. Over the past decade, Marcy has spent 70 hours or more each week advancing her career. Even though the dogged pursuit of her career has left impermanence throughout her life with no lasting relationships and art-less walls, it is worth it. With the NIH grant, she can research a protocol to help women with breast cancer become active decision-makers in their treatment. But, when Dr. Tunbolt, Marcy’s serial-sexual-harasser boss, commits his worst-known offense against Marcy’s mentee, Marcy has no choice but to report him.
Marcy reports her boss and expects rallying support from her zero-tolerance employer. Yet, as the investigation wears on, she realizes that it is her, not her boss whose character is under attack. Suddenly, Marcy’s career and her chance at the NIH grant are on the line because of her actions, and Marcy has to decide whether she’ll stand alone to fight for what’s right or save everything she has spent her life working toward.
