Examines the growing interest in fasting as a treatment for cancer, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases.

Journeying to the Goryaschinsk Spring Sanatorium on the shores of Lake Baikal, in southern Siberia, the film shows how decades of secret clinical studies conducted by Soviet and post-Soviet doctors have led to new applications for fasting and caloric restriction. Shows case studies of liver damage reversal and arthritis mitigation at Germany's Buchinger Clinic, as well as the findings of an innovative gerontologist at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
