Health care in the United States is broken.
To fully understand how severe of a crisis we’re in, people from all over California told us about their experiences with a system in dire need of reform.
Call your member of congress today:
After spending an afternoon hearing about emergency room visists, people getting dropped by their insurance companies, losing money, family members and even homes, we were inspired.
We knew that if these stories were heard — that if you watched something more dramatic than a squirrel — you’d understand just how badly this country needs real health care.
Please shared these stories with your friends. Email them; tweet them; post them to your Facebook wall; project them on the sides of buildings.
Please help reform health care in the United States. Whether it’s a phone call, email, office visit to a congressperson or conversation with your friend, every little bit helps.

Thank you first and foremost to our storytellers. Thank you so much for opening up to us and sharing something so personal.
This project couldn't have been done without the help and generosity of many others. Special thank-yous to Peter Gulezian for the tripod, Todd Dailey for the camera, Aaron Owen for the 30-minute Final Cut lesson, Faruk Ateş for the design comp and David Evan Harris and Adina Levin for advice. Early editing was done on Tony D’Souza’s monitor. Dagmar Berendes leant us a laptop for a road trip.
