The equivalent of a book that you can't put down!
26 October 2019 | by monicapews-17764See all my reviews

My husband and I rarely watch the same show with the same amount of joy or excitement. This show however, has grabbed us both in a way that we weren't expecting. It is so well made; the story is excellent, to the point where we'll hit the pause button and discuss our thoughts and beliefs before resuming the episode. This is a heartfelt documentary that everyone needs to watch. I hope this is the beginning of the fall for the pharmaceutical company's control on drug pricing. This show is so complex! The points being brought up are so important to shed light on, and I hope it sparks as much interest for you as it did for us. You need to watch this.
