‘The Chosen One’ Trailer: Doctors Meet a Cult of Anti-Vaxxers in Brazilian Netflix Series


“Science is always in doubt. Faith is certain.”

Netflix has released the trailer for The Chosen One, and alas, it isn’t a Matrix series. It’s a Brazillian thriller series that follows three doctors determined to take a government-backed vaccine to a remote village. The problem is that the people there really don’t want the vaccine, since they’re in a cult that claims to live forever and have a mysterious leader that may or may not contain spiritual gifts.

It’s an interesting plot for a time when the anti-vaxxer movement is gathering renewed momentum. The timely element aside, the trailer below shows off an energetic 6-episode series with what look like pretty dark turns. Count us as quite intrigued.

The Chosen One will be hitting Netflix on June 28.
