We go inside the Washington that's buzzing and humming after the sun goes down. We'll go on night rounds with the doctors caring for kids in a cardiac ICU, and tuck in to French toast and eggs at one of the region's oldest 24/7 diners. Plus, we'll hear one woman's candid story of caring for her elderly father long after the clock strikes midnight.

[Music: "Every Little Bit Hurts" by John Davis from Title Tracks /"Strangers in the Night" by Fausto Papetti from In a Sentimental Mood]
