Summary Through the story of a 45-year-old who has already suffered two heart attacks and bypass surgery, this film analyzes the impact of such factors including depression, stress, and diet on heart diseases, but makes clear that for African-Americans these lifestyle issues are inseparable from the discrimination, poverty, segregation, substandard education, and day-to-day tensions engendered by racism.
