Medical thriller based on a recent true story of a doctor who found a dangerous link between numerous deaths and a widely-prescribed drug.

"In the Brest hospital where she works, a lung specialist discovers a direct link between some patients’ suspicious deaths and Mediator, a medicine that has been prescribed for 30 years. Determined to bring the truth to light, she challenges the power of the medical court and pharmaceutical companies. From the isolation at the beginning of her discovery to the explosion of media coverage of the scandal, this true story, inspired by the real life of Irène Frachon is a David and Goliath battle to see truth triumph at last."
