After discovering his lies, Benita went on an international quest for answers. With never-before-seen footage and photos, follow along this two-part special of He Lied About Everything to discover, along with Benita, how Paolo Macchiarini’s reckless path of destruction left patients dead, families shattered and a field of medical research in disarray, leading to a meltdown at the institution that awards the Nobel prize in medicine.
