"Seven years after the acclaimed documentary Under Our Skin, the filmmakers catch up with the people and controversies from the original movie. We witness the emerging epidemic of Lyme disease as infection and education spread globally. We watch as the truth emerges about the disease's persistence and reach, about promising new research, and about medical collusion and conflicts of interest that continue to impede progress. We revisit the characters from Under Our Skin as they emerge into better health, reclaiming their lives and dignity, and offering hope to the legions now suffering. As Lyme disease surges, Emergence shines a probing light on the issue and becomes a beacon in the dark."
