Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States as the site of the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station from 1892 to 1954. This is the first film about the once abandoned U.S. Marine Hospital Number 43 on Ellis Island. The documentary looks at the era before antibiotics, when tens of thousands of immigrant patients were separated from family, detained in the hospital, and healed from illness before becoming citizens. 350 babies were born, and ten times that many immigrants died on Ellis Island. 3,500 were buried in pauper's graves around New York City.
