In 1957, German pharmaceutical company Chemie Grunenthal manufactured Thalidomide, advertising it as a safe sedative with a wide number of applications. However, when pregnant women began to take the drug to alleviate morning sickness, thousands of children around the world were born with physical deformities, including stunted arms and legs. This documentary introduces three people whose lives have been affected by the legacy of thalidomide, and discusses how they have struggled to meet the challenge of coming to terms with their disabilities.
