The Quiet Epidemic

MKE Film Festival

After years of living with mysterious symptoms, several disparate patients are finally diagnosed with a disease that some claim does not exist: Chronic Lyme disease. Alongside Directors Winslow Crane-Murdoch and Lindsay Keys, both Lyme patients themselves, these patients demand answers but land in the middle of a fierce and murky medical debate littered with suppressed research, buried documents, and injustices endured throughout the medical system.
