Two brothers, both doctors, stand on opposite sides of the controversy. To Dr. Arthur Marshak, his work is a momentous gift to humanity. To Dr. Jessie Marshak, it is a curse. Between them stands a beautiful, remarkable woman both brothers will do anything to save. Somehow, before it’s too late, Arthur and Jessie Marshak must bridge the gap that divides them… on an issue that could mean nothing less than life or death for millions.
