Timeline from the years 1998 to 2001

During Peron’

s political reign, an Argentinian heart surgeon named Rene Favaloro created an innovative surgery to cure heart attacks.

The coronary bypass heart surgery would eventually save countless lives around the world. Furthermore, it would additionally be adopted as the world treatment standard for heart attacks and coronary health issues. Despite his passion and dedication, Dr. Favaloro’s contribution to society and the growing pressures associated with it resulted in a struggle with his inner demons. The Favoloro Foundation fell into $18M USD of debt. As a result, Mr. Favoloro tragically ended his life.

The man who healed so many hearts around the world was so unfortunately unable to heal his own. This film portrays the life of this unsung Latin American hero who changed the lives of many at the tragic expense of his own life.
