Based upon a true story, John and Aileen Crowley (Brendan Fraser and Keri Russell) are parents of two children suffering from a rare genetic disorder.  A doctor portrayed by Keri Russell may have a cure for the disease, but lack of funding hinders any further research.

Together, the Crowleys manage to collect the $100 million required to begin synthesizing a cure.  The path is not easy though as they encounter numerous hurtles along the way, including the slight possibility that the cure will fail.
