More than 700,000 Americans die of heart disease each year from a completely preventable disease. THE WIDOWMAKER features cardiologists, heart attack survivors and lawmakers. It reveals that a hidden battle fought inside America’s medical establishment has pitted prevention against intervention. This film will change the way you think about heart disease and it just might save your life.
