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. He came to develop the MMR vaccine, invent the first-ever vaccine against human cancer, and more.

This film puts a human face to vaccine science, revealing the character that drove this heroic man.
After the film, there will be a Q&A with director Donald Rayne Mitchell and Dr. Paul Offit, Director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia as well as the Maurice R. Hilleman Professor of Vaccinology and a Professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
