Supported by his lovely wife Aileen and their three sons, John began his career toward success. But when taking off, is forced to stop after learning that her two young children, Megan and Patrick, have been diagnosed with an incurable disease. With his wife at his side, John is associated with an unconventional but brilliant scientist, Dr. Robert Stonehill. Led by different reasons, together create a biotech company, where, on the one hand, you want to find a cure to save the lives of their children, while the other seeks to get to prove himself and his scientific theories.
