While witnessing unprecedented increases in autism among young children, an internationally revered medical doctor finds his retirement troublesome. Dr. Jeremiah Trent is convinced that a mercury-based vaccine preservative, similar to one he helped create while a young university chemist, could be the catalyst behind a rampantly spreading malady that had no recorded history before 1945.

Trent moves forward quickly, forming an unlikely alliance with irascible former U.S. Congressman Samuel L. Crockett who has an autistic grandson. Together, they unearth hidden agendas in the nation's capital that they are convinced are being orchestrated by outsiders seeking profits before safety. When Trent uncovers an incriminating internal drug company memo that supports his theory, his unsolved murder forces Crockett to turn to his daughter Elena, an attorney and the mother of his autistic grandson, to help him find the missing memo and finish what Trent started.

As Elena develops a national grassroots autism awareness campaign, fueled in part by the heartwarming story of a young autistic savant with da Vinci-like skills, she witnesses a groundswell of support across the nation as her father continues his battles with the federal bureaucracy. With hidden barriers and roadblocks at every turn, father and daughter use the persistent setbacks as added fuel to continue their quest, battling inch by inch across a perpetual sea of heartbreak toward the bridge of justice. The world's children are waiting on the other side.
