Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary!

This is the untold story of how AIDS activists beat back an epidemic and changed the world. Under attack, a self-made group of young men and women infiltrated government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry to move new drugs through trials and into use in record time, saving lives—and creating a paradigm for patient empowerment and healthcare activism. Their tale stands as a powerful inspiration to future generations, a road map and a call to arms.
