Thirty years ago, a group of improbable heroes including Dr. Paul Farmer and Dr. Jim Young Kim came together on a daring mission to make quality healthcare available to everyone, even in the world's poorest countries. Fighting entrenched diseases, political and bureaucratic machinery, and the charity-industrial complex itself, these crusaders forced the international community to embrace the idea that health care must be a basic human right.
Directors: Kief Davidson, Pedro Kos; Starring Paul Farmer, Ophelia Dahl, Jim Yong Kim.
