The astounding, true story of one warmhearted, stubborn man’s visionary quest to find a cure for cancer.

Breakthrough traces Allison’s remarkable life from his school-boy days in Friday Night Lights, Creationist Texas all the way to Stockholm where, in December of 2018, he accepted the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

For decades he waged a lonely struggle against the skepticism of the medical establishment and the resistance of Big Pharma. Today, Jim Allison is a name to be reckoned with throughout the scientific world — as the 2018 Nobel Prize winner for discovering the immune system’s role in defeating cancer.
