How much would you sacrifice to survive? At 27, filmmaker Joanna Rudnick tested positive for the BRCA mutation. She now faces an impossible decision: remove her healthy breasts and ovaries or risk incredible odds of developing cancer.
Armed with a positive test result that leaves her essentially "a ticking time bomb", she balances dreams of having her own children with the unnerving reality that she is risking her life by holding on to her fertility. In The Family follows Joanna as she takes us on a groundbreaking journey through the world of predictive genetic testing.
