David Sieveking is a young, funny-hat-wearing filmmaker from Berlin. He seems to have a happy life: he is raising a healthy blonde-haired daughter; his wife is a composer and their rented apartment in Kreuzberg has a good view. But his well-being is threatened by a suddenly painful issue: vaccines. "We should definitely do them”, says the husband. “They are dangerous, unnecessary and absolutely against nature”, says the wife. The uncompromising battle between those who consider vaccines mandatory and those who believe that the risk of side effects outweighs the advantages goes on almost every playground and parenting-related Internet forum in the world. Will the opposing parties ever reach an agreement? In order to restore peace in his own family, the director of Family Shots sets out on a trip. His quest for truth brings him to research institutes, supporters of alternative medicine, WHO headquarters in Geneva, and a humanitarian mission in West Africa.
