Over a century ago, in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, one of the world's great public hospitals was built. Twenty-two state-of-art buildings were crammed onto two small, man-made islands, formed from the rock and dirt excavated during the building of the New York subway. The complex was know as the Ellis Island HOspital. This film tells the story of the abandoned health complex with historic photographs and video footage. Narrated by Elliott Gould, it is a powerful portrayal of the best and worst of America's treatment of its immigrant populations.
