Polio has plagued humanity for thousands of years and continues to cripple and kill. Can the war against this disease end in this decade? In remote villages and urban slums, The Last Child tells the story of the global campaign to eradicate polio. From the frontlines in Nigeria, Bangladesh and other countries, you'll witness the victories and challenges with which health workers and volunteers are faced. The polio campaign is the largest non-military global enterprise in human history, involving dozens of organizations, thousands of health workers, millions of volunteers and a $3 billion price tag.
"It is an engrossing and moving film and hopefully will inspire us to take this final step to reach that last child." - Francis Ford Coppola
