I have traveled from Asheville to Morehead City interviewing folks who are and have been in dire straits, trying to get the medical attention they need. This documentary is about some of the 560,000 qualified North Carolinians who have been denied Medicaid benefits by the North Carolina General Assembly.

Carol Edmonds grew up in rural Guilford County. After retiring from a career as a computer systems analyst, she got involved in photography and then videography when she began taking classes at CDS. In 2012 she made "Wondrous Love," a short film about death in a small town, for CDS’s Anytown, USA class, and this year she contributed videography to a segment of Religion and Ethics Newsweekly on PBS. She works with social justice advocacy groups.

This was the final project for the Certificate in Documentary Arts at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. See more Fall 2013 final projects at cdsporch.org/archives/21145.
