This documentary is a must see. The film clearly positions that politics and not medicine is the driving force behind diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease. Some briefly mentioned facts about connections between Lyme and other physical and mental diseases will shock you. This film will help you understand not only Lyme, but the health profession as a whole. Go see this film. It s defintely worth your time. I promise it will be one of the most compelling films you have seen in some time.

This movie was eye opening, well done and presented both sides of the debate. The film portrays the lives of hundreds of people who are sadly caught up in a fierce battle between disease and politics. It was heart-wrenching to see doctors who actually want to help these patients get better and who care so much about them that they will risk their livelihood and practice. That is an act of true self-sacrifice and integrity. Not only did this movie reveal and explain the flaws of mixing science and politics, it detailed startling facts about how Lyme disease is more prevalent than HIV/AIDS and is in every state, and on every continent. However, there is an effort to suppress it because insurance companies are in bed with many doctors and some university researchers. Everyone should take the time to see this movie and inform themselves, because Lyme can be easy to catch and difficult to treat, and debilitating (and even life-threatening) in late stages.
