The world is reeling from the impact of the novel coronavirus, and the hunt for a vaccine is in full swing. The question is: will countries work together to develop and distribute a vaccine, or will national egoisms get in the way? A new documentary takes viewers on a journey behind the scenes of the race for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Several vaccines have now been approved, but does that mean an end to the pandemic is in sight? The film explores the heated debate over vaccine distribution and whether the most vulnerable or wealthy parts of societies will receive the vaccine first. From the high-tech labs of pharmaceutical companies in Germany, the United States, Britain, and India, the film team offers an exclusive glimpse behind the veil of secrecy surrounding vaccine research.
