Filmmaker and homeopath Ananda More becomes the target of a campaign against homeopathy, propelling her to travel the world and explore whether homeopathy is truly science-based and effective or a mere placebo.
Homeopathy is commonly presented as a therapeutic system that can’t work, because it hasn't been proven how it works. In the past science observed gravity and electricity before it was explainable. However, homeopathy is not granted the same latitudes or research and instead is the target of attacks, which disregards ever-growing volumes of compelling data.
In Ananda's global travels, she meets with scientists, sceptics, practitioners and patients. In Magic Pills she presents how homeopathy is being used to treat cancer in India, support the use of anti-retroviral medication for HIV/AIDS in Africa and prevent common epidemics in Cuba. She also visits and interviews scientists at university laboratories, where cutting edge experiments prove once again that maybe science can’t always explain and know, how nature really works. One thing becomes apparent as many professionals share their work: homeopathy offers deep and gentle support. The film finishes in Homeopathy friendly Switzerland
