Decoding Annie Parker
Annie Parker (Samantha Morton) has a personal relationship with breast cancer. Her mother and her sister died of the disease and ultimately she is diagnosed with it too. Naturally affable with an offbeat sense of humor - even in the face of her own mortality, she struggles to hold her family and life together, as her body betrays her. Meanwhile, geneticist Mary-Claire King (Helen Hunt) is convinced there is a link between DNA and cancer - even if no one in her profession shares her belief.
