Le film raconte une phase cruciale de la lutte de l'humanité contre le diabète, à savoir la découverte de l'insuline par Frederic Banting et Charles Best, à l'Université de Toronto. On voit les deux savants aux prises non seulement avec les terribles énigmes que pose la maladie, mais avec le scepticisme de leurs collègues, l'insuffisance des ressources, l'impératif des échéances.
