Every year, 700.000 people die from infections caused by multi-resistant germs. By 2050, according to some studies, this number can rise up to 10 million a year. We are facing the “post-antibiotic era”- a time, in which medicines no longer can protect us against infections.
The film tells us the story how negligence, greed and short-sightedness has rendered the lifesaving effects of antibiotics powerless. A science-thriller about disillusioned, fighting doctors, rebellious scientists, patients wrestling with life-threatening diseases and diplomats searching for a global solution. They all are Resistance Fighters.
