Summary:
This film documents the triumph over leprosy by looking at one of the most unusual communities in American history, “Carville," a refuge for leprosy patients from all over the world. Crafted from contemporary interviews, exclusive photographs and more, the film takes viewers inside Carville, introducing them to patients, doctors and staff who lived and worked there. The narratives are underscored by original music by Grammy-winner Bela Fleck.
