The greatest scientist of the 20th century, and no one knows his name. This documentary tells the inspiring story of Dr. Maurice Hilleman, a man with a singular, unwavering focus: to eliminate the diseases of children. From his poverty-stricken youth on the plains of Montana, he came to prevent pandemic flu, develop the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, and invent the first-ever vaccine against human cancer.  Now through exclusive interviews with Dr. Hilleman and his peers, rare archival footage, and 3-D animation, this (60 minute) film puts a human face to vaccine science, revealing the character that drove this bold, complex, and heroic man.
