Behind closed doors a team of doctors may have found the cure to an illusive disease. Now they’ll put that work on the line as they enter the final round of FDA trials to rid the world of juvenile diabetes.
Dr. David Finegold is a determined Pittsburgh native who gravitated towards helping sick children early on in his medical career. Thirty years ago he made a promise to a weeping girl that he would cure type 1 diabetes. He intends to keep that promise.
This film will not only explore the exciting prospect of a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, but will also delve deeper into the issues facing all parties involved: the individuals, the doctors, and the the families. The moral dilemmas that plague the current medical and research climate, and how progress can still be achieved through sheer passion and force of will. The film will evoke deep feelings of ambivalence and confusion in the audience. It is a
classic epic; greed and indifference battles zeal and determinism.
