More than three years after the start of the pandemic, the world is still in the unknown. This documentary followed scientists from around the world in their quest for the origins of SrasCov2 from the early months of the catastrophe. Virologists, bat biologists, epidemiologists, members of the WHO mission to Wuhan… they are investigating the origins of Sras-Cov 2, the virus responsible for Covid19 disease. Gwenlaouen Le Gouil shadowed his brother, leader of the WHO mission, gaining exclusive access to this once-in-a-century expedition.
Against all odds, these scientists fight to separate truth from fiction. If they eventually succeed in identifying the wild origins of the virus in colonies of horseshoe bats in northern Thailand and Laos, there is still a lack of definitive evidence on the famous “missing link”, the intermediate animal that allowed the virus to pass from animal to human.
