Synopsis

Annie Parker has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and ultimately she is diagnosed with it too. Naturally affable with an offbeat sense of humor - even in the face of her own mortality, she struggles to hold her family and life together, as her body betrays her. Meanwhile, geneticist Mary-Claire King is convinced there is a link between DNA and cancer - even if no one in her profession shares her belief. Against the advice of nearly all of her colleagues, she persists in her research and her dogged pursuit for funding that will lead to the groundbreaking study that will join the two women together.
