Drama about the controversial Tuskegee, Alabama, syphilis experiments of the 1930s and 1940s, performed on unknowing black men. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-nominated play by David Feldshuh. The story centers on nurse Eunice Evers who works at Tuskegee Hospital in 1932 to assist in caring for poor black men with syphilis. Government funding becomes available to study syphilitic African-American men who will receive no medical treatment as a way to establish whether the disease affects blacks and whites differently.
