The Healer. When healing is priceless

Diabetes is a leading cause of death and disability in Mexico. In the town of San Cristobal de las Casas, Dr. Sergio Castro pays home visits and treats his patients in a museum that doubles as a clinic at no cost.

The six-minute film focuses on a day in the life of this altruistic healer, who explains in his own voice his curious vocation, which has already saved the lives of several of his fellow neighbors.
