Nearly 50 years after a vaccine for polio was developed in the United States, the polio virus still finds refuge in some of the world’s most vulnerable places. In India and Afghanistan’s impoverished neighborhoods, THE FINAL INCH follows the massive—and yet highly personalized—mission to eradicate polio from the planet. The film challenges our most basic assumptions about disease, poverty, and our own health as a human right.
