Shortly after becoming a doctor, Chad Wagner injures his spinal cord in a plane crash that kills his parents. Unable to accept the fact that he will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, Chad spends the next ten years researching a way to regenerate the damaged cells in his spinal cord. Through his research Chad discovers a way to not only control people's health, but also their memories, and their very lives. He constantly battles with the oral decisions associated with his discovery. Should he use the treatment he created to heal himself? Should he save other people from pain and suffering but at what cost? Was he playing God? All of these questions must be answered when he is faced with the decision of whether to save the lives of two of his closest friends or keep his new treatment a secret and allow them to die a natural death.
