While driving home one seemingly normal afternoon, friends Derrick and Peterson discover something mysterious. Derrick is a botanist and chemist, while Peterson is a plastic surgeon, so they might be the perfect pair to come upon a tree with a mysterious sap that vibrates and glows. Curious, they fill a pail to test later.
Peterson soon notices that he splashed some of the sap on his arm, and his arm has now changed. The affected skin not only looks better but also feels better. Perhaps there is something supernatural about this sap? Before there is time to consider, an earthquake occurs that may or may not be related to the men's breakthrough.
Enthusiastic about what they found, Derrick and Peterson agree on a worthwhile goal. It is possible they could create a wonderful, healing destination for mankind, but only following a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns.
