Eric Rutherford is dying of a cancer called Myeloma, and one of the side effects of Myeloma is it damages the kidneys. Eric thinks that a drug called Revlimid would extend his life, but it is so expensive that the NHS hasn’t yet decided if we as a nation can afford it. Without it Eric has no other treatment. Over eight months Adam Wishart follows Eric and his wife Anne as they fight for his life. Wishart gains unprecedented access to decision-makers from the NHS and the patients who are desperate for life extending treatment, and the American company that discovered and will profit from it.
