A documentary intended to clarify, summarize and confirm scientific basics of the stem cell research debate and key conflicting moral concerns in the US. Stem cell research funding proponents argue that it is a moral duty to pursue scientific progress intended to provide healing hope for humanity. Opponents argue that the ends do not justify the means in creating and destroying some human life to save that of others. The film seeks an answer to the question, "Is stem cell research a potential miracle cure for diseases or a form of macabre biological perversion?" The film also highlights the often overlooked breakthroughs which are being made with adult stem-cell therapy.
