Inspired by an incredible true story, the CBS Films docudrama portrays one father's desperate quest to save his children from succumbing to a rare life-threatening genetic disorder. Working-class father John Crowley (Brendan Fraser) is finally on the fast track to corporate success when his two young children, Megan and Patrick, are diagnosed with Pompe disease -- a condition that prevents the body from breaking down sugar. In time, it disables the heart and the muscles, ultimately resulting in death. With the support of his wife, Aileen (Keri Russell), John ditches his career and teams with unconventional specialist Dr. Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford) to found a bio-tech company and develop a cure in time to save the lives of Megan and Patrick. As Dr. Stonehill works tirelessly to prove the theories that made him the black sheep of the medical community, a powerful bond is forged between the two unlikely allies. Still, their greatest struggle is yet to come. Jason Buchanan, Rovi

This is an excellent movie which warms the heart, and aggravates the mind! So many diseases continue to get ignored, even though they can be at least treated by drugs, but there is not "big money" in them because they do not affect too many people; this one effects children who die before they reach their teens, usually, so why bother?Well, this mom & dad did, with their hearts, souls & money; finding a researcher who had been working on a drug for years, in theory; they raised the money to have it tested & marketed; finally, a treatment. You will cry, but it is worth it. Harrison Ford is his curmudgeonly best, trying not to care; Brendan Fraser & Keri Russell give just enough angst as the parents; Courtney Vance, in a small role, is perfect as another agnonized parent; the kids are GREAT!
