The human stories behind the deadly infection TB, a deadly airborne disease, are making a dramatic comeback in Swaziland. Passed on by a cough or sneeze, TB travels fast and multi-drug resistant variants are starting to appear all over the world. Multi-BAFTA winning filmmaker Jezza Neumann creates an intimate account of the crippling effects of MDR-TB, following victims from two families battling the disease over the course of a year. In deep rural Swaziland near the border of South Africa, Bhekiand his sister have MDR-TB. As time passes Bheki's sister's condition deteriorates and he starts to become increasingly depressed and suicidal. In Mbabane, 17-year-old Melusi cares for his 12-year-old sister Nokubonga after their mother's death. Nokubegha is diagnosed with the MDR Strain of TB and must be admitted to the hospital to receive daily medications.
