In post-apartheid South Africa, life has gotten better, but now there is a disease that has hold on a vanishing population. Sixty-three percent of the world’s population infected with HIV/AIDS lives in the country, and in Kwazulu Natal, where the rate of infection in women is twice that of men, one out of every six people is HIV-positive. This beautifully shot documentary intimately displays the humanity surrounding this astounding epidemic and proves that those suffering are more than mere statistics.
