“Extraordinary Measures” is based on the true story of John Crowley (played by Brendan Fraser), a man who risked everything to pursue a cure for his children’s life threatening disease. Frustrated by the lack of available research on Pompe disease, Crowley teams up with an unconventional scientist, Dr. Robert Stonehill (Harrison Ford). Together they form a biotech company, working with venture capitalists and teams of researchers focused on developing a new enzyme treatment for the disease. Yet, just when it appears a solution has been found, the relationship between Crowley and Stonehill faces a final test - the outcome of which will affect the fate of John’s children.
