When given the news that he has terminal cancer, Walter White, a washed-up and unappreciated chemistry teacher turns to the the wild world of drug production in order to provide for his wife and children after his death. He seeks out the assistance of Jesse Pinkman, a former student of his who is already in the game. At first, Jesse resists Walter's proposition and rightly so. They are a mismatched pair to be certain, but as the series goes on, we see that the two have a lot more in common than they realize.
