Narrated by Kelly Mcgillis (Top Gun), the global docudrama 1 a Minute is an unprecedented push by international women celebrities (who are also cancer survivors) such Olivia newton John, Melissa Etheridge, Jaclyn Smith, to raise funds for a cure, promote awareness and prevention, in addition to providing support for survivors of women’s cancers.
The film follows a woman’s journey through cancer, with a particular focus on Breast Cancer – the most frequent cancer confronting women worldwide. At each stage of her journey, testimonials from high profile survivors (or those affected closely by it), recount a correlative experience.
The film stars internationally celebrated women from various nations and backgrounds who are also survivors like Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Jaclyn Smith (Charlie’s Angels), Melissa Etheridge (An Inconvenient Truth), Diahann Carroll (Claudine), Lisa Ray (Water / Bollywood Hollywood), Namrata Singh Gujral  (Americanizing Shelley / Kaante), Barbara Mori (La Mujer de Mi Hermano / Kites) and Mumtaz (Hare Rama Hare Krishna / Khilona). The film also stars brothers Billy Baldwin (Backdraft / Parenthood) and Danny Baldwin (Vampires), whose mother is a survivor and finally Priya Dutt, whose mother, the famous Bollywood star Nargis Dutt, died of cancer.  The documentary also covers interviews with top Western Oncologists such as Dr. Dennis Slamon whose research led to the revolutionary drug Herceptin, top Eastern medicine practitioners such  as Dr. Deepak Chopra as well as experts Ambassador Nancy G. Brinker (Founder: Susan G. Komen for the Cure) and more.
