abstract
Dramatizes the story of country doctor Fred Banting and his project to isolate insulin, the substance that would eventually save the life of Elizabeth Hughes, the young daughter of the U.S. Secretary of State, and that of thousands of other diabetics. Examines Banting's frustrations and his often-strained relationships with J.J.R. MacLeod, his patron at the University of Toronto, Charles Best, his partner and research assistant, and James Collip, the biochemist who worked with them.
