This controversial documentary follows the lives of six people who are living with life-altering physical and neurological symptoms after being diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease. Poignant, first-hand interviews of the patients and their families shed light on the seriousness of their conditions as the film brings viewers into their homes and offers glimpses of their daily lives and struggles.

Along with a lesson on what Lyme Disease is, how it progresses, its effects on the body, and possible treatment options, conversations with patients and health care professionals brings forth discussions of the divide that exists between patients, infectious disease specialists and insurance companies on the acceptance of Lyme disease as a chronic illness that warrants long-term medical treatment and the allowance of insurance company payments for currently prescribed treatments.

Discussions of the medical board investigations of two physicians who treated patients for chronic Lyme disease, and the Infectious Disease Society of America medical guidelines on how physicians should treat Lyme disease add drama and controversy to this thought provoking and moving film.
