A once lawyer is thrown off track, and then out of his firm due to a life threatening disease. At a meeting with his last client, he meets a doctor from rural Sicily who has discovered a "cure all" medicine made from the leaves of a centuries old Olive tree. The lawyer, his daughter, Danielle (a scientific prodigy), his client and his wife journey to rural Sicily to find the source of this cure, and in doing so learn about a centuries old Olive Tree that seems to have profound powers: But is it science or a secret from ancient scripture? Past, present and future intersect through the ongoing struggle of doubt, belief and faith for all that come in contact with the tree.
