In America, AIDS became a public health crisis in the 1980s, but this documentary suggests that the disease took root decades earlier. In the 1950s, missionaries from America and Europe vaccinated countless African youths in an effort to rid the continent of polio. But subsequent studies suggest that the medicine was deeply flawed, and that it actually weakened the recipients' immune systems. The film blends historical evidence and new findings in its analysis of this urgent medical concern.
