Q&A with Executive Producer Brenda Abulu after the screening

Set in Nigeria and New York City, the film is about an African-American cancer specialist in New York, Dr. Michael Durant (Isaiah Washington), who tries to save a young patient by seeking the help of an uncertified Nigerian doctor — Dr. Bello (Jimmy Jean Louis) — an immigrant living in Brooklyn. Under the cover of night Bello slips the patient a secret African potion, helping him recover. But Durant’s solution is discovered, and he is suspended by his hospital while Bello is imprisoned for medical malpractice.

Soon, however, Bello himself falls critically ill, and it falls to Durant to save him by locating the secret elixir, which is found only in the “Garden of Life” on a mountain range in Nigeria.

(Dir. Tony Abulu, 2013, 95 min, USA/Nigeria, drama, English)
