Synopsis

Who is the man behind the most highly controversial, intensely debated topics in modern medicine? Dr. Andrew Wakefield is one of 13 co-authors of a notorious 1998 paper in the UK medical Journal The Lancet, but who became the very public face of what has come to be known as “The Anti-Vax Movement.” An expat from Britain who currently resides in Austin, Texas, Wakefield allowed Bailey and her team to follow him and his family for five years beginning in 2011 as he fought a defamation battle in the courts against the British Medical Journal and journalist Brian Deer. The results of that case—and the self-reflection, pronouncements, and observations of Wakefield, his legal team, wife, and his children—create a complex and incisive look at one of our era’s most fear-provoking and continuously provocative figures.
