Synopsis - The Illustrated Family Doctor is a dark comedy, that centres on the story of Gary Kelp, a young man who condenses reference books for a company called the Info Digest. The film begins with Gary's fathers death, and Gary having to start work on condensing a home medical journal called The Illustrated Family Doctor.
