Decoding Annie Parker is a feature film based on the real lives of two remarkable women. It is the story of Annie Parker, played by Samantha Morton, a sharp-witted, funny and irrepressible young woman who watches her mother, then sister, fall victim to breast cancer. When later, she herself is diagnosed with the disease, she believes that her cancer must be hereditary in nature. She is resolved to fight back against immeasurable odds.
The film is also the story of Dr. Mary-Claire King, played by Helen Hunt, the Berkeley-based geneticist whose discovery of the BRCA1 gene and its link to hereditary breast cancer forever changed the understanding of the disease. Hers is considered one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
Annie Parker and Mary-Claire King are separated by thousands of miles, by circumstance, background and education, but their lives gradually intertwine until a final, singular and life-changing reckoning.
