Discover an astounding story of activism and innovation in this feature-length documentary about a small group of people, mostly HIV positive, who changed the face of AIDS. The film features two groups (ACT UP and TAG) who work together to turn AIDS from a death sentence into a manageable disease. Regardless of the fact that they’re not doctors or scientists, these people managed to implicate themselves in the pharmaceutical industry, point out promising new treatments and help usher them along to market with incredible speed. In their nine-year-long battle to save their own lives, they ended up saving 6,000,000 more.
