When a troubled 15 year old boy attempts to cope with the recent passing of his mother, he sets out to research Dr. Max Gerson’s claims of a diet that can cure cancer.
Garrett is a boy who has always been close to nature. He lives on a reserve with a menagerie of orphaned animals, and over the years he’s become especially sensitive to the nutritional needs of the diet-sensitive animals he’s charged with caring for.
When Garrett’s mother suffers from her untimely death, the boy falls into a dangerous downward spiral and nearly flunks out of school. His father becomes increasingly concerned for Garrett’s well-being, to strengthen their bond his father makes the decision to begin home-schooling the distressed teen.
The boys first assignment is to study a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson, a physician who claims to have discovered a diet that’s capable of curing cancer. Is Dr. Gerson’s diet therapy truly the legitimate, alternative cure it appears to be?
In order to find out the truth behind this long-suppressed treatment, Garrett interviews not only Dr. Gerson’s family members, but various doctors, sceptics, and cancer patients as well.
When Garrett finished his studies completed and his findings, he sets out to tell the entire world about The Gerson Miracle.
