9000 Needles follows forty-year-old Devin Dearth who, after suffering a devastating stroke, faces dismal odds of recovery, as well as, the confines of the US health care system. In a desperate search for an answer, his community and family rally behind him, raising the necessary funds and support to send Devin on an unconventional journey to China where he will participate in a program which uses acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicines to treat stroke patients. Upon arriving in China, Devin’s courage, faith and desire to overcome are tested on a daily basis. The trials he and his family endure along the way remind us that the human spirit can transcend any boundaries while exploring a universal community of healing and transformation.
