Take Care of Maya

Henry Roosevelt
Caitlin Keating, Rylan Soref

When nine-year-old Maya Kowalski was admitted to the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital near Sarasota, Florida, her only problem was a painful stomach ache. By the time she left the facility three months later, her health had declined, her world was shattered and her mother was dead. This true-crime feature documentary unravels a medical horror story that is still playing out – one with the potential to uncover an overlooked national menace. Are a handful of medical professionals saving children like Maya from abusive homes, or are they running a for-profit scheme that destroys hundreds of families each year?
