Summary
"This documentary tells the story of Dr. Jonas Salk, who developed the vaccine that conquered polio, the most feared disease of the 20th century. A horror movie could not be more dramatic; polio is a mysterious disease that preys on children, killing them or leaving them crippled. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a victim of polio, inspires the public to send in their dimes to fund research, some of the money goes to an ambitious young scientist, who changes the course of history. Featuring interviews with world renowned experts, as well as people affected by the disease, this documentary charts the story of the methods and people involved in developing this critical vaccine."-- Container
