Forty year old Devin Dearth is a successful businessman, loving husband, father of three, and champion bodybuilder. He and his family reside in the small community of Central City, Kentucky where they live the picture book 'American Dream'. That is until Devin suffers a devastating stroke, leaving him paralyzed on his right side, unable to walk, with difficulty speaking, double vision and unable to care for himself or his family. As Devin moves from from ICU to in-patient rehabilitation, and eventually into home care he and his family quickly discover the cinfines of the American health care system.Due to the lack of resources, both financial and scope of care, Devin's window for recovery begins to close. In search of an answer, Devin's brother Doug proposes they travel to Tianjian, China, to participate in a stroke rehabilitation program which integrates Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine to successfully treat stroke victims. A program both affordable and promising. They decide to take the leap.Upon landing in China, there is an aura of determination and surrender surrounding Devin as he is immediately immersed into a treatment program and philosophy like nothing he has ever known. Up until now his adversaries had seemed greater than he, but now, with this new team of compassionate mysterious, medical alchemists, they no longer seem insurmountable.We follow Devin on this unconventional journey, where his courage, faith, patience and desire to overcome are tested on a daily basis.
