Giuseppe Moscati was a medical doctor in Naples, Italy, during the early 20th century. His brilliant research led to the discovery of insulin as a treatment for diabetes. Before examining a patient or engaging in research, he would place himself in the presence of God. He encouraged his patients to receive the sacraments, and treated poor patients free of charge. This movie tells his compelling story.
