We are on the eve of banishing polio from our planet. For many of us it’s only a memory, but until a few years ago this disease ravaged the world. It’s been nearly defeated thanks to the largest peacetime mobilisation in human history. The last mile is proving to be the toughest – with superstition, war and vaccine resistance all playing a part. This film follows a chain of meetings between some hidden heroes as they investigate what’s at stake in this final phase – the Endgame.
The Endgame is a 30-minute documentary commissioned by Pearl Group and produced by Nice Media with the financial assistance of GSK Vaccines. All proceeds will be donated to polio charities.
