The Film

BODY TEAM 12 is tasked with collecting the victims at the height of the Ebola outbreak.  These body collectors have arguably the most dangerous and gruesome job in the world.  Yet despite the strain they emerge as heroes while the film explores their philosophy and strength.

The story is told on the ground in Monrovia, Liberia through the eyes of the only female member of the team, Garmai Sumo.

A mother and caretaker, Garmia possesses a certain type of maternal heroism.  And through Garmai, we see the heartbreaking, lifesaving work of removing bodies from loved ones in order to halt transmission of the disease.

Run time: 13 mins
