Jim Allison: Breakthrough

The story of one man's visionary quest to find a cure for cancer.

Three main editing challenges on this film:  finding the balance between the personal and professional stories;  presenting sufficient science to understand the plot without overwhelming the audience; and varying the pace so a long film remains compellling throughout.

Directed by William Haney, Produced by Jennifer Pearce, Narrated by Woody Harrelson.
