In the movie, which opens June 29, Moore takes three 9/11 volunteer rescue workers to the U.S military base in Guantanamo Bay to get them medical treatment for a variety of respiratory problems - "the same kind of [medical treatment] Al Qaeda is getting!" Moore yells into a bullhorn.
When the military proves unreceptive, Moore and his subjects end up at Havana Hospital, where a team of physicians treat their new patients with great sensitivity and care - all at no cost.
As a bonus, Moore interviews Aleida Guevara, daughter of the Cuban Revolution icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara, who brags about the Cuban health care system and asks American viewers "Why are we able and you are not?"
Meanwhile, a pirated copy of Sicko has made its way onto the Internet and is available to download gratis - you know, just like that awesome Cuban health care.
