Even those who are entitled to insurance are not treated well becausethe insurance is inadequate. The insurance define the authorizations for treatment as disastrous for them, they consider it as a waste of money!

The film includes testimony from manypeople who have problems with their health insurance, or because they haven’t insurance. The movie shows ordinary people whose lives have been shattered because of accidents which are harmless tous French!
