A remarkable collaboration grows between a Canadian electronics businessman with no medical training, a maverick Israeli scientist, a renowned English transplant surgeon, and a brave, 26-year old patient with a rare, seemingly incurable, cancer.

This thought-provoking and charged inquiry takes you on a journey spanning three continents, with broad implications for thousands of cancer patients, as 26-year-old Kayte, with the extraordinary support of her family, and a medical "X-Men" team courageously undergoes a potentially life-saving experiment in faraway India.
