The drugs are where the decease is not

More than fifteen years after the discovery of antiretrovital medicines, director Dylan Mohan Gray lets us in on the shocking history of how the american government and the big pharmaceutical companies blocked low-cost medicine to third world patients suffering from AIDS, leading to millions of preventable deaths. The film picks up where last year's Oscar-winning documentary HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE ended, and provides a disturbing portrait of western medicine monopolies and lack of humanity in the very industry where it is most needed.
