"A chilling tale of microbes, medicine and money. Under Our Skin exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time. Each year, tens of thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are all in their head. Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, this acclaimed film uncovers a corrupt establishment all too willing to put profits before patients."--Container.
