NYC PREMIERE A young Brooklyn girl has suffered mysterious symptoms for years when her determined father stumbles upon a vicious medical debate: the existence of chronic Lyme disease. In 1975, the CDC and health insurance companies set guidelines still used today to deny the diagnosis and treatment for its debilitating symptoms. The film investigates the controversial history around chronic Lyme and the patients and medical researchers fighting to change policy and develop new treatments. – Kim Garcia
