Full Story Foundation and Films has launched production on a new three-part documentary series called, "Last Man Standing." The project focuses on the legal trials of Dr. Atif Malik. Part I is scheduled to be released in June 2019.
Dr. Malik’s family and friends have been working tirelessly to secure his freedom and correct the public record. Now, Full Story Foundation is honored to join them in this important mission.
When a Harvard-educated doctor and decorated humanitarian reports wrongdoing to federal law enforcement officials and prosecutors, he should be honored and thanked. However, this was not the case for Dr. Atif Malik – a whistleblower who now sits in federal prison serving for the crimes of those he reported.
In the 1970s when Atif Malik was still a young child, he emigrated with his family from Pakistan to the United States, settling in Texas. At the age of 18 he achieved one of his major goals in life -- he became an American citizen. His life’s story is one nearly every American can embrace – as a youth he was harassed and bullied because he was different from other kids. But rather than hold on to resentment, this Harvard-trained caregiver emerged as a public servant, global humanitarian, and a man of deep faith. Dr. Malik dedicated himself to his profession and his patients. Even the President of the United States acknowledged that he was using his gifts to help others and make the world a better place.
Then, suddenly this highly-decorated physician’s American dream turned into a tragic nightmare.
It is important to understand that federal officials didn’t find wrongdoing in Dr. Malik’s medical practice – Dr. Malik self-reported potential violations the moment he discovered the people he trusted to oversee his business finances may have committed a crime. As the process unfolded, the American justice system didn’t just fail Dr. Malik – it was used as a weapon to manipulate and wrongfully attack him and his family.
The Full Story Foundation believes what happened to this honorable man should be cause for concern for every law-abiding citizen of the United States.
