In a country where over 44 million people live without healthcare, who is looking out for America’s uninsured? This documentary follows the volunteer organization Remote Area Medical as they set up a popup clinic in Bristol, Tennessee for three days. During that time, the organization’s doctors, nurses and support workers provide care for hundreds of people who can’t afford routine medical checkups, and many other basic services like dental exams and prescription eyeglasses that so many of us take for granted. As the national debate over the future of healthcare rages on, this moving documentary takes a step back from the politics to give an emotional portrait of those affected by our broken healthcare system. In Person: Directors Farihah Zaman and Jeff Reichert; Remote Area Medical founder Stan Brock.
