This incredible documentary recounts and tries to figure out one of the greatest mysteries that have occurred in France in the XX century. The mystery of Pont-Saint-Esprit reviews the history of the town that saw its population wake up with hallucinations that affected hundreds of people, which caused the hospitalization of dozens in mental health homes and that caused at least 10 deaths.
For decades it was believed that the cause had been involuntary and massive contamination through bread that contained a grain of rye contaminated by a hallucinogenic mold. But a recently evidence point to a CIA experiment through which it sprayed the people of PSE with LSD in an intelligence program in which they proved the effects of this drug as a biological weapon at the beginning of the Cold War.
