"Without a Net" follows the plight of Sofia, a young African mother who struggles to save her baby from the deadly disease, malaria. Beautifully filmed, this intimate portrait brings us on a journey to a remote tribal village in Tanzania. Here, local medical personal work tirelessly to educate the community, as well as the many efforts taking shape at the world-renowned research clinic in Bagamayo. Despite the tragedy, at the heart of the film is the struggle to triumph over malaria as Tanzanian doctors and medical researchers lead the world in developing new treatments to combat this deadly pandemic. Few films are as adept at portraying a personal African perspective.
