A Government Lie. A Woman's Secret. A Story That Must Be Told.

Based on the shocking true story. Miss Evers' Boys exposes a 40 year government-backed medical research effort on humans which led to tragic consequences. It is 1932 when loyal, devoted Nurse Eunice Evers (Alfre Woodard) is invited to work with Dr. Brodus (Joe Morton) and Dr. Douglas (Craig Sheffer) on a federally funded program to treat syphilis patients in Alabama. Free treatment is offered to those who test positive for the disease, including Caleb Humphries (Laurence Fishburne) and Willie Johnson (Obba Babatunde).

But when the government withdraws is funding, money is offered for what will become known as "The Tuskegee Experiment"; a study of the effects of syphilis on patients who don't receive treatment. Now the men must be led to believe they are being cared for, when in fact they are being denied the medicine that could cure them. Miss Evers is faced with a terrible dilemma - to abandon the experiment and tell her patients or to remain silent and offer only comfort. It is a life or death decision that will dictate the course not only of her life, but the lives of all of Miss Evers' Boys.
