In the turbulent Spring of 1968, an ambitious white student from Brooklyn finds himself an outcast at Meharry, Nashville's legendary, all-black medical school. There, he and his peers battle the intricate mysteries of medicine, demanding professors and each other in their quest to become healers.

There is no charge to attend the community viewing. The Cal Turner Family Center for Student Education Auditorium is located on Meharry's campus at 1011 21st Avenue North.
