"A brilliant young research biologist (Chalfy) working in an obscure university lab discovers a possible cure for cancer," according to press notes. "When the dynamic director of New York's leading cancer institute (Pine) becomes his mentor and champion, he is set on a path of acclaim and prestige that could lead directly to the Nobel Prize. But the halls of science twist and turn in surprising ways, and the young doctor is suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of medicine, money and power."
The Alley creative team includes scenic designer Bill Clark, costume designer Martha Hally, lighting designer Kevin Rigdon and sound designer Pierre Dupree.
