This documentary highlights the journey of Harry M. Hoxsey, whose family’s herbal medicine is claimed to be a cure for cancer.

Hoxsey was a coal miner and eventually established his clinics in 17 states within two and a half decades starting from 1924.

He had to constantly face criticisms and allegations of being a quack and charlatan. He clarifies that he was made a victim as organized medical establishment were against these natural cures as they would have made billions of losses and also political and economic forces dominate research and development.

The documentary includes interviews of patients satisfied with the results of the controversial treatment and is balanced with physicians from the FDA and the AMA. Critics and opponents are also skeptical of claims of 80% success rate in a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico.
