On October 30, 2015, a deadly fire in a Bucharest nightclub claimed the lives of 27 people. Nearly 200 more were injured, but expected to recover. In the weeks and months that followed, dozens more began dying from their seemingly treatable injuries. Cătălin Tolontan, the editor of an unlikely publication, Romania’s Sports Gazette, launched an investigation. What the sports editor and his team of reporters uncovered was beyond what anyone could have imagined – a health care scandal that went to highest level of government and would eventually oust their country’s Prime Minister. This is a riveting story of corruption and greed that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s also a testament to a team of intrepid journalists who were determined to discover the truth and hold accountable those who were responsible for the tragic, needless deaths of their citizens.
