This gripping film uncovers the shocking human and medical dimensions of Lyme disease through the personal stories of those affected. Tens of thousands may acquire Lyme disease yearly (our area is ranked as moderate-to-high risk) and yet the medical establishment–with profound influence from the insurance industry–has stated that it is easily detectable and treatable, and that “chronic Lyme” is some other unrecognized syndrome or a completely psychosomatic disorder.
