Plot Synopsis

FRONTLINE presents compelling and engaging documentaries that explore the stories and issues of our times -- from foreign affairs to family matters, social issues to criminal justice, and politics to the press -- offering in-depth, intelligent and objective investigations of contemporary life. FRONTLINE has built a reputation for powerful reporting that tackles the tough, controversial, and complex stories that shape our times. From Martin Smith's probe into the decisions leading to the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, to Michael Kirk's investigation of prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib; from Ofra Bikel's examination of America's racial divide over the O.J. Simpson verdict, to special reports like "The Age of AIDS" and provocative journeys like Hedrick Smith's search for the answer to the question, "Is Wal-Mart Good for America?"
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FRONTLINE returned for its 33rd season on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 10pm (check local listings). The Season 33 premiere, "The Trouble with Antibiotics," tracks the use of antibiotics in food animals to investigate if it's fueling antibiotic resistance in people. Subsequent episodes in Season 33 include "The Rise of ISIS" and many more topical documentaries and investigations.
