Where the Roads End tells the story of a young doctor, Oriol Mitjà, who travelled to Papua New Guinea and came up with an important medical treatment for eradicating Yaws, a disease affecting over 40 million people in the world, above all children.
This disease is transmitted by direct contact, causing skin lumps and potential bone deformation.Yaws is endemic to many areas of Africa, Southern Asia, South America and some areas of the Pacific.
Where the Roads End, is a loving story of humanitarian commitment which touches viewers' hearts in a powerful way.
The account of this dedicated doctor and his determined mission to wipe out the disease is, in and of itself, a fascinating adventure. But beyond describing the battle he waged against this disease, the documentary skillfully reveals the compelling personal side of the story.
