As the Coronavirus pandemic unfolds, we follow the lives of six people all situated in different parts of the world including China, USA and Brazil trying to do their best for their local communities during this global disaster. It's difficult to watch but utterly compelling and provides access to the people behind the statistics, these are the human faces of the pandemic and we witness their anguish alongside the small victories that can mean the difference between life and death. After The White Helmets and Evelyn, von Einsiedel presents an exceptional documentary about an extraordinary time in our history.
