Summary
Every year, over a million babies are born worldwide with a hereditary disease; most are serious, and many are fatal. For much of history, doctors could only treat symptoms. Now an elite cadre of pioneers, gene doctors, is starting to target root causes. Through intimate stories of families whose lives are being transformed, the film takes viewers to the frontlines of a medical revolution
