Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This Italian documentary examines the practical ways in which AIDS patients continue on with their lives after receiving the fatal diagnosis rather than focusing on the emotional side of having the disease. Via studio interviews, the patients talk about the ways their lives have changed. Relationships become a big issue as does work; some of those interviewed chose to disguise themselves in horrible masks to protect their careers. They also discuss the emotional phases they undergo as they come to grips with AIDS and hopefully continue to look at their futures, no matter how short they may be.
AIDS, emotion, future, terminal-illness
