Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by ticks and it is spreading throughout the world at an alarming rate. Facial paralysis, painful joints, meningitis. For sufferers it's a living hell. Faced with this disease the medical profession is at a loss: unreliable testing, uncertain therapeutic protocols, a scientific community that is divided. Taking no sides, this documentary explores the hidden side of this affair.

Also available in French: La face cachée du médicament pour enfants
