In the Same Breath recounts the origin and spread of the Coronavirus, from the earliest days in Wuhan to its rampage across the United States. With a deeply personal approach, Wang explores the parallel campaigns of misinformation waged by leadership and the devastating impact on citizens of both countries. Emotional first-hand accounts and startling, on-the-ground footage weave a revelatory picture of cover-ups, while also highlighting the resilience of the healthcare workers and activists who risked everything to communicate the truth.
