Summary
Academy Award winner Alex Gibney directs a documentary investigating the rise and fall of Theranos, the one-time multibillion-dollar healthcare company founded by Elizabeth Holmes. In 2004, Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford to start a company that was going to revolutionize healthcare. In 2014, Theranos was valued at $9 billion, making Holmes, who was touted as "the next Steve Jobs," the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world. Just two years later, Theranos was cited as a "massive fraud" by the SEC, and its value was less than zero. Drawing on extraordinary access to never-before-seen footage and testimony from key insiders, director Alex Gibney will tell a Silicon Valley tale that was too good to be true. With all the drama of a real-life heist film, the documentary examines how this could have happened and who is responsible, while exploring the psychology of deception
