Watch 'Under Our Skin' here
The acclaimed documentary "Under Our Skin" (2009) brought unprecedented awareness to the shocking story of Lyme disease - an often chronic condition many doctors claimed was “all in your head."
Since then, the CDC has upped its estimate of annual cases by ten times, making Lyme disease more prevalent than HIV and breast cancer combined. This highly-anticipated sequel,Under Our Skin 2: Emergence investigates the deepening Lyme disease crisis and follows its casualties and controversies.
As the Lyme epidemic explodes globally, scandalous medical collisions and conflicts of interest incriminate the very healthcare systems meant to protect us. Despite the obstacles that researchers, physicians, and patients continue to face, promising new findings are emerging. And when we revisit the once gravely ill characters from "Under Our Skin", we see that they have moved from horror to hope, arriving at better health and reclaiming their lives.
