Everyone dreads a cancer diagnoses. The word itself strikes fear and hopelessness into those who are afflicted. When the disease targets the mother-in-law of veterinarian Bill Schneider, he is desperate to see her cured, so much so that he begins a simple treatment on some of his pet patients and is shocked when it works.
First, though, there’s a question: just because Bill’s vaccine worked on animals, does that mean it will work on human beings, too? Frantic for a remedy, he treats his mother-in-law, and amazingly, his discovery saves her life. Word travels fast of Bill’s medical breakthrough, as people everywhere fear the loss of loved ones, too, and seek a miracle.
As word spreads of positive results, Bill is led down a path of questionable morals regarding illegal medical practices. The question becomes, is it more important to follow the law or save a life? Bill’s moral struggle could cost him a lot more than his practice; it could cost his freedom, but can you put a price on human survival?
