HBO’s drama The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a film adaptation of the eponymous book by Rebecca Skloot, which is based on real events.
The action takes place in the early 1950s. African American woman named Henrietta Lacks became part of the first medical research. Its purpose was to search for humans’ immortality. After examining Henrietta’s cells, scientists tried to identify a mysterious gene that would help remove from the human body such property as aging and death. Scientists paid attention to Henrietta’s cells because African Americans have greater resistance to diseases, and grow old later. Therefore, the immortal cells of Henrietta Lacks were in a special status among scientists.
