"Jewels of the Jungle" follows microbiologist Dr. Gary Strobel as he scours the world's forests for new natural medicine that may prove critical in combating diseases like cancer and malaria. This hour-long documentary chronicles Strobel's work with endophytes -- the bizarre microscopic life forms inside nearly all of the world's plants. The film examines endophytes' revolutionary potential to create a new generation of cheaper and more plentiful "wonder drugs." Cameras accompany Strobel into the rainforests of Bolivia and Peru as he searches for new species of endophytes.
