The movie: Something The Lord Made.

Dr. Alfred Blalock and Vivien Thomas.

Starring Mos Def and Alan Rickman, is based off true events. This movie is a drama about the medical field. About baby's turning blue, because of deoxygenated blood flowing to the body tissues. This movie is very inspirational. It also is about segregation, and the amount of things Dr. Vivian Thomas had to go through. Him being a lab technician, and people in his field looking down on him. All because he was a person of color.
This is truly a touching story.
With the works of these brilliant minds coming together, they invented Cardiac Surgery.

"Blue Baby Syndrome" - Congenital Heart Defect.
