Something the Lord Made

This film tells the story of pioneering work in cardiac surgery. It follows the two men, a white doctor and a black lab technician, who work together, despite racial and cultural issues, and find a cure for blue baby syndrome. Thomas' situation as a black man in a white man's world is overwhelming sad - but, you can't help but admire his determination to do something special and excel despite the barriers. This movie has everything: jubilation and celebration, inequity, despair, friendship, and the rewards for perseverence. Best of all it is a true story!
