Filmmaker David France tracks the efforts made by activist groups ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group) to convince the government and the pharmaceutical industry to speed up human trials of experimental drugs that ease the suffering of HIV/AIDS patients. Thanks to their tireless efforts, HIV/AIDS would eventually become a manageable condition, rather than a death sentence.
