Why are drug company CEOs making saleries of up to $39 million dollars a year, while people are being spoonfed into taking poorly tested AIDS drugs that have horrible side effects? A Spoonful of Sugar takes us on a scary look into the world of the pharmaceutical companies, AIDS meds, side effects, advertising and big time dollars. Intercut with classic I Love Lucy episodes, this film reveals some of the alarming profits being made off AIDS treatments.
