Conversion is a medical suspense that chronicles the life of a surgeon originally from West Africa and a mysterious illness that leaves him paralyzed and muted while living in the United States.
Amos Thompson was born to two poor teenage parents in a forgotten small town in the West African Country of Liberia. However, he gets a lucky break and becomes the first person to ever win a very prestigious and competitive government sponsored scholarship to the only medical school in the country. But his journey and fortune takes him even further to South Africa to complete his training as a Surgeon.
Then tragedy strikes while he is away when both of his parents die of devastating causes, one of them very mysterious. But the grieving Dr. Thompson returns home to the all-important job as President William R. Tolbert’s personal doctor. However, this will only be short-lived as he is forced to flee the country for asylum to the United States because of a coup de tat that results in the execution of the president and most of his cabinet members. Then while working in a McDonald's fast food kitchen as his first job in the United States, his fortune changes when he falls in love with his US government appointed counselor, the beautiful Suzanne, and begins a complete new chapter in his life.
But tragedy strikes again on the graduation day of his elder son when the doctor loses his entire family in a senseless accident. Two months later he experiences what seems like a stroke that paralyzes and renders him mute. But all tests are normal.
That is when the mystery of his illness unfolds in a nursing home, bringing back questions about his life’s journey, the death of his parents, and the real cause of his paralysis.
