What happens if you fall sick and are one of 47 million people in America without health insurance? Critical Condition by Roger Weisberg puts a human face on the nation's growing health care crisis by capturing the harrowing struggles of four critically ill Americans who discover that being uninsured can cost them their jobs, health, home, savings, even their lives.

The Betrayal (Nerakhoon) (Episode #2205)

KQED World: Wed, Jan 11, 2012 -- 10:00 AM

Filmed over 23 years, this is a unique collaboration with the film's subject and co-director, Thavisouk ("Thavi") Phrasavath. After the US government waged a secret war in Laos during the Vietnam War, Thavi's father and thousands of other Laotians who had fought alongside American forces were abandoned and left to face imprisonment or execution. Hoping to find safety, Thavi's family made a harrowing escape to America, where they discovered a different kind of war. Weaving ancient prophecy with personal testimony and stunning imagery, this is a story of survival and the resilient bonds of family.

She seeks out Helen Jonas, who was enslaved by Goeth and who is one of the few living eyewitnesses to his unspeakable brutality. The women's raw, emotional meeting unearths terrible truths and lingering questions about how the actions of parents can continue to ripple through the next generations.
