A brilliant and ambitious genetic anthropologist, Jillian is driven to find a cure for early-onset Alzheimer’s to save herself and possibly her young daughter from the disease. When the opportunity arises to research the genes of an isolated Native American tribe who could hold the key, Jillian pushes ethical boundaries in the name of scientific progress. Inspired by the real life conflict between the Havasupai Tribe and an Arizona university, Informed Consent takes a fresh look at the age old debate of science versus culture & faith, and whether our DNA should write our life stories.
