Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Canadian filmmaker Brent Leung embarks on a global mission to discover why HIV/AIDS is still as much a mystery today as it was when it first made headlines in the early '80s. In his quest to define the deadly autoimmune disorder and find out what steps are being taken to cure it, Leung speaks with survivors, activists, Nobel laureates, presidential advisers, the executive director of UNAIDS, and even the two researchers crediting with discovering HIV. As the story of HIV/AIDS continues to develop and evolve, conventional wisdom regarding it proves ever more elusive and uncertain. In this film, the key players in the battle against HIV/AIDS share their own wisdom in their own words, proving once and for all how little we truly know about this devastating epidemic.
