After drinking radioactive iodine to kill her overactive thyroid, filmmaker Maggie Hadleigh-West catapults into illness and the medical industry's negligent treatment of thyroid disease. Sick to Death! reveals Maggie's disturbing 30-year struggle to regain her spiraling health, telling the story of life with chronic illness, its correlation with other maladies and its collision with medical corruption.
Sick to Death! gives voice to the experience of millions of individuals worldwide who have suffered and are inadequately or untreated. Featuring experts, activists and a powerful growing international movement, the film demands medical justice for all.
Sick to Death! isn't your typical medical film. Instead, it's a deeply intimate portrait, sometimes scathing, sometimes funny but always a rousing invitation to life, health and justice.
