The statistics are startling. 15 million Americans have food allergy, a potentially life-threatening disease. Almost 6 million of them are children. Every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency department.

Right now, there is no cure – and the smallest amount of the wrong food can have tragic consequences.

In this powerful but heartwarming documentary narrated by Steve Carell, Discovery Channel examines the struggles of families and individuals with life-threatening food allergies, their journey to navigate the dangers around them, and the growing hope for a cure.
