About the Documentary

Thousands of women each year learn that they have a genetic predisposition to breast and ovarian cancer. The response of three women to this information is the subject of "Inheritance," an unprecedented documentary about hereditary cancer, genetic mutations, and the life-altering measures devised to prevent the onset of disease in high-risk families. "Inheritance" chronicles the medical and emotional journeys of three women from diverse backgrounds.
