After suffering from Ulcerative Colitis for nearly a decade, filmmaker Saffron Cassaday tries a new treatment known as Fecal Microbiota Transplant: taking stool from a healthy donor and implanting it into the gut of a sick patient. Using her partner as a stool donor, Saffron spares no detail in exploring what some experts believe could be the biggest medical breakthrough of the 21st Century.
