This short documentary film, part of the award winning BBC World News documentary series “Kill or Cure,” features struggles of health workers in both developed and developing countries. The film portrays a real-life journey of Dr Brian Kubwalo, a Malawian doctor working in Manchester, UK, who embarks on a personal quest to find out whether he should go back to his native Malawi, where his skills are sorely missed, or stay in Manchester, where he can provide better future for his children.
