Summary
"A deadly airborne disease is making a dramatic comeback, passed on by a cough or sneeze, TB is travelling fast. Multi drug resistant mutations are starting to appear in London, but this film takes us to Swaziland, where TB is already officially a national emergency. In this gripping account we witness victims from two-families battling with the crippling effects of MDR-TB over the course of a year. A tragic, yet heart-warming account documenting the value of human life, love and family." -- Container.
