Stigma

Stigma follows filmmakers Jeff Johns and Ryan Loughridge as they travel the globe to discover why more hasn’t been done to completely eradicate the existence of Leprosy in the world. Through India, Nepal, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, they talk to WHO doctors and aid workers, while visiting numerous colonies and hospitals to meet those affected by the disease and to understand the life-changing stigma it has created for them and for their families.
