To save a man's life, a team of doctors and specialized personnel are miniaturized (using secret military technology) and injected into the patient where they will prefer surgery from inside his body. For the crew (Stephen Boyd, Raquel Welch, Edmond O'Brien, Donald Pleasence and Arthur Kennedy) this is a fantastic voyage.
