Taking place on the front line of the current polio crisis in Pakistan, this film is a story of sacrifice, determination and sorrow in the face of mistrust, cynicism and violence. A few years ago, polio persisted in only three countries and the number of victims was steadily decreasing. However, when the Taliban issued a ban against the polio vaccination, and attacked vaccinators, Pakistan's campaign was ruined. Today families and healthcare workers are in the cross hairs of politics and bloodshed as they attempt to protect against polio. Once at the brink of eradication, the disease is again a global threat with Pakistan at the center of the spread. This documentary follows its subjects; a medical specialist, a vaccinator, a vaccination skeptic, an adult polio victim and a sick child. Through their vivid stories we are drawn in to the search for a solution to this devastating disease. Will these everyday heroes succeed and end polio, or will another young generation be at risk?
