The world continues to deal with COVID-19 and herd immunity is not reached and skepticism, resistance and hesitation about vaccines continues representing a major obstacle. During the first few months of the vaccination effort, filmmaker Chris Newberry and his team followed a diverse set of health professionals as they gained the trust of at-risk communities across Minnesota. The resulting documentary is a tribute to the doctors, nurses, organizers and influencers who are embracing community-led efforts to overcome vaccine doubts.
