Movie Info

Former Dateline NBC producer Jessica Gerstle joins her father Claude in getting to the heart of the federally funded stem cell research issue in this earnest documentary featuring Michael J. Fox, Sam Brownback, Orin Hatch, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Claude Gerstle was a successful surgeon and athlete when a tragic bicycle accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. Now, in order to better understand the debate that divides a nation, Claude and his daughter Jessica seek the wisdom of America's most prominent politicians, crusaders, thinkers, and dissenters. Sometimes the greatest advocates for a cause are the very people who never saw themselves as an advocate in the first place.
