I have seen the film. It reminds me of my early days as a doctor in rural Bangladesh, where cholera epidemic was regular. I was wondering how thousands of lives were saved by blocking the oral-fecal route of transmission of the organism! It was simply done by maintaining hand hygiene, water purification, boiling the food before eating, safe excreta disposal, putting away the food from flies and last but not the least, the magic ORS (oral rehydration solution) used for treating the patients. All these issues are so vivid and described in a way that’s easy to understand by everybody in the film. This film will definitely help to bring the much-needed behavioral change in the affected population. Kudos to the organization for picturizing the public health measures which will go a long way to reduce the mortality and morbidity in the affected population.
