Walter White is a 50-year-old high school chemistry teacher from Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition to holding down two jobs, Walter must deal with the financial burden of having a disabled teenage son and a new baby on the way. Adding to Walter's stress is the discovery that he has terminal cancer. Desperate to find a way to make sure his family is taken care of financially, Walter embarks on a bold and drastic change of lifestyle when he reunites with one of his former students - Jesse Pinkman. Jesse is an amateur crystal meth dealer who enters into a reluctant partnership with Walter to cook the highest quality meth in all of Albuquerque. When Jesse questions the logic of partnering up with his old teacher, Walter dryly explains, "You know the business... and I know the chemistry".
