The animated story is told by a young girl whose grandfather dies from Ebola and puts the rest of her family at risk. It brings to life the many messages that are so crucial in understanding this disease on a community level.

The film makes visible the invisible Ebola germs to help people see and understand how Ebola spreads and how to protect themselves. Critical messages are woven through the story so that people better understand Ebola, see themselves within the context of an outbreak, and see how to act in ways that can keep themselves safe from the disease and protect their communities.

Although the situation in West Africa has improved dramatically, the Ebola crisis is still not over. This film is intended to be part of ongoing educational and awareness efforts in that region that are critical in eradicating this disease.
