IN A TIME OF EPIDEMIC, THE HUMAN SPIRIT PREVAILS
"On the Lake" tells the true story of the tuberculosis epidemic in America in the 1900s and globally today through the lives of those who became sick and died---but also of patients who survived, against great odds. More than scientific facts and figures, ON THE LAKE touches that rare emotional cord of what life was like for millions of people infected with TB, while providing a glimpse into human nature when faced with a large-scale epidemic.
Directed by David Bettencourt Produced by G. Wayne Miller
