Synopsis by Phil Griffin

For years, Elizabeth Holmes conned Silicon Valley investors, claiming she'd created a revolutionary medical invention called the Edison that could perform hundreds of medical tests in minutes from just a drop of blood. This documentary explores America's tech culture to understand how Holmes was able to create a $9 billion tech company called Theranos without any real technology. Directed by Alex Gibney.
