This acclaimed, but scarcely mentioned, feature length documentary film focuses on the 1971 Sloan-Kettering cancer treatment cover-up scandal, as well as whether or not Laetrile was, is or indeed, still, can be a viable alternative treatment or floodgate to the spread of cancer. The majority of the film examines the major players behind the scenes of the scandal and often highlights the thoughts of scientists who were working in the medical and pharmaceutical business at the time. The film takes a highly stylized and dramatic approach to its subject material, which has sometimes been criticized by film reviewers as sensationalism. Regardless of these critiques, the film was highly regarded upon it's initial release and continues to be talked about in the world of independent documentary film-making. The film was directed by Eric Merola.
