“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”
— Stephen Hawking
Many women are given the illusion of knowledge when they receive their yearly letter announcing the results of their mammogram — but the reality is mammograms only “work” for 60 percent of women. So, what about the other 40 percent? This riveting documentary tells the story of the fight to accurately inform women about their cancer screening. It’s difficult to imagine that there could be a debate among legislators and the medical community over whether or not to give women vital information that could save their lives.
