In 2015, 27 people perished in a tragic fire at the Romanian music club, Colectív, and a shocking 37 more died in hospitals during the weeks that followed due to inadequate facilities and rampant infections. As a whistle-blower exposes the situation to a team of investigative journalists, one revelation leads to another and the journalists start to uncover a vast corruption network in the health care system. Following the resignation of the Minister of Health, a new minister offers unprecedented access to the ongoing reforms, as well as the obstacles it faces. Following journalists, whistle-blowers, survivors, and government officials, Colectív is an immersive and uncompromising look into the price of corruption and the price of truth.
