With the US election just around the corner, Gibney, with co-directors Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger look at the US response compared with South Korea and how they handled the virus. On January 20th, 2020 both countries discovered their first cases of COVID-19. Since then, however, the novel Coronavirus has claimed the lives of over 212,000 Americans, while only claiming 427 lives in South Korea.

Secretly filmed in lockdown, using hard investigative reporting, Gibney, Harutyunyan and Hillinger obtained damning testimonies from public health officials and senior White House Staff, exposing a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of Presidential leadership.
