How far are we from the past? 200 hundred years apart – under the same roof. In 1799, scientists focus on a Scottish maid with a severe spine-related disability; in 1999, the debate centers on the ethics of using human embryos for stem cell research. The narrative weaves both eras together in an exploration of society, gender, and morality on the path to scientific progress.
