A documentary portraying the beautiful, shining spirit of eight long-term AIDS survivors.

In their weekly group therapy sessions, these men share their most intimate and painful moments. Their honesty and rawness breaks down the barriers between gay and straight, living and dying.

Millions of people across the globe are HIV+, and the numbers continue to increase. Although treatments for AIDS have improved, there still is no cure for this devastating disease.

Tragically, improved medications have created a false sense of security: risky sexual behaviors and consequent HIV infections are increasing, especially in young, urban populations, both straight and gay.

This film is a tribute to the immense possibilities that exist when we dare to open our most secret inside selves to one another and learn to love.
