Headlines and news reports about the Zika disease able to destroy the babies’ brains in the womb have shocked the world. Beyond the fear and awe inspiring disease which caused a large scale epidemic in Brazil this film questions the epidemic and reveals the origins of this seemingly harmless disease secretly spread across half the world undetected for decades until it exploded in a deadly epidemic. Could it mutate to affect adults with more severe effects and could it cause delayed damages to children’s health for those born with the disease? The Medical world is engaged in a race against time to try and answer these questions.
