Plot Summary
One difficulty in diagnosing Lyme disease is the fact that its symptoms are very broad, they seem to mimic those of other diseases and they vary from patient to patient. This documentary investigates the epidemic we are now facing and traces its flourishing to a negligent and corrupt health care system. Interviews with patients and doctors paints a clear picture of a medical industry that has decided to place profits ahead of the health of the people it is supposed to be treating.
