In this fast-paced, emotionally charged true-life medical drama which verges on science fiction, a mother fights to save her son from a deadly bacteria.

At camp, eleven-year-old Damian Heersink suddenly becomes ill. Within days, an infection ravages through his bloodstream and attaches his organs one by one. A confusion of diagnosis and treatment ensues. Damian is rushed into surgery seven times in the battle to save his life.

Meanwhile the killer microbe, which has attached Damian like the virus in Richard Preston's The Hot Zone, is the cause of epidemics elsewhere. Tough investigators and heroic doctors work around the clock trying to stop its advance.

E.coli 0157 is a powerful human drama about a mother waging a desperate fight for her child's life, grappling with ineffective government agencies and a greed-driven industry as a deadly bacteria threatens to strike anywhere, anytime.
