Take a trip into the core of the Big Apple to see just how it is being eaten away from the inside out in a witty, two-time Emmy Award-winning documentary from filmmaker Mark Lewis exploring the eternal rivalry between man and rat. From the inner walls of New York's tallest skyscrapers to the sewers and subways far beneath the surface, there is virtually no place in the city that these resilient vermin haven't claimed for themselves. The human population isn't about to go down without a fight, though, and now as cameras snake through the drains of the city and follow along with exterminators to find out just how the hearty city-dwellers deal with their furry little problem, curious viewers can have a front-row seat to a battle waged every day against an enemy that isn't likely to go away anytime soon.
