Garrett is a 15-year old boy living in the Alaskan wilderness with a menagerie of orphaned animals. Growing up close with nature has given him a deep understanding of nutritional needs required by diet sensitive animals on the reserve. Unfortunately, the untimely and tragic death of his mother propelled him into a downward spiral and he risked flunking out of school. This led to his father's decision to home-school Garrett.
His first assignment was to study a controversial book written by Dr. Max Gerson. Written over 50 years ago, Dr. Gerson found that diet could, and did, cure cancer. Controversial at the time (and even today), Garrett took on the challenge of researching this amazing therapy, which drew the interest of his neighbors in the small Alaskan community.
With the help of Dr. Gerson's daughter, Charlotte Gerson, and grandson, Howard Strauss, they gave him the ammunition needed to go in search for the truth a truth that would affect not only him, but his entire Alaskan village all of whom wanted to know if these claims were true. After a number of cancer patients, who were diagnosed as terminal, shared their stories and their medical records with Garrett, it became abundantly clear that, contrary to the disinformation campaign spear-headed by the multi-billion dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, a cure for virtually all cancers and chronic diseases does exist and has existed for over 80 years!
Garrett's mission now is to tell the world.

How to Eat Fried Worms tells the story of Billy (Luke Benward - "We Were Soldiers," "Because of Winn-Dixie"), an 11-year old who, on his first day at a new school, inadvertently challenges the town bully. To save face and earn the respect of his new classmates, Billy agrees to a bet -- whether he can eat 10 worms in 1 day -- that will determine his fate at the school. As the pressure mounts, he must summon heroic strength to keep his 5-year-old brother from blabbing, his weak stomach from betraying him, and his big mouth from getting him into more trouble than he's already in. Starring Golden Globe-nominee Tom Cavanaugh (TV's "Ed," "Bang Bang You're Dead"), Kimberly Williams-Paisley ("Father of the Bride I & II," "We Are Marshall"), James Rebhorn ("Scent of a Woman," "Baby Mama"), and Hallie Kate Eisenberg ("The Insider," "Bicentennial Man").
