ON THE LAKE: LIFE AND LOVE IN A DISTANT PLACE
The film 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. ON THE LAKE shines new light on a major period in American history that has been forgotten--and a disease that many today think of as "dead," but in fact is the number two infectious killer around the world, after HIV/AIDS.
