A young woman's apartment goes up in flames and a dashing young man saves the day! But to firefighter Louis Garcia, evidence at the scene didn't quite add up....at least, they didn't quite add up to that. He hunts down the source of the blaze.
Family X has suffered for generations from a deadly "curse." Most of the men in the family died, some at very young ages, from a particularly lethal form of pancreatic cancer. Seeking to break the pattern, a father comes to Dr. Teri Brentnall and her research partner Dr. Mary Bronner for answers. Reporter Lu Olkowski follows their decade-long race to find the source of the disease, in which Teri and Mary find themselves drawing blood samples in the bathroom of a sandwich shop and pulling in other researchers to ferret out answers. A dream team of researchers, including Drs. Brentnall and Bronner , Dr. Ru Chen, Dr. Tatjana Crnogorac-Jurcevic, Dr. Sally Down, Dr. Carol Otey, Dr. Kay Pogue-Geile, and Dr. Kara White Moyes, toiled until they could announce a powerful discovery.
