The United States pays nearly twice as much for healthcare as any other industralized nation, yet it still does not provide care for all of its citizens. While the Affordable Care Act has helped some people many of us are feeling the pinch of rising costs and narrowing networks. Polls show that 58% of Americans favor a national publicity funded healthcare program. So why has the US Congress not yet passed-or even considered such a plan?

This documentary delves into what single payer healthcare is, how it saves money, and what behind the scenes heroes are doing to clear the fog of misconception that keeps us from moving forward.
