Project Description The story follows Dr. Jacob Hawthorne, a biochemist, who currently works for the US government in researching a new cancer treatment. Their team have finally made it to the last steps in their experimental drug. However, FDA regulates that a drug must have at least a year of positive tests before they are allowed to start human trials. Concurrently, his young daughter's cancer has returned and she is in her final stages of life, returning home from the hospital to spend her last weeks comfortably. With it being so late in her cancer, she will end up dying before human trials could begin. He must choose to let her die in peace or attempt to save her with the experimental drug. He must juggle with morals, the law, and his own conscience to make his choice.
