From the 1920s to the late 1950s, United States citizens with leprosy were forcibly transported to Carville, America's last leprosarium. They were often in chains and in sealed box cars. Abandoned by family and friends, stripped of their constitutional rights (to vote and even to use the telephone), many of Carville's "residents" nonetheless accomplished the remarkable act of transforming their prison into a home. Tells a damning story of outrageous discrimination and stigma in the American public health system, interwoven with a haunting and bittersweet chronicle of human courage and perseverance. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
