Summary, etc.:
The definitive history of the battle to halt the AIDS epidemic, and the powerful stories of the gay activists who refused to die without a fight. France tells the story of the men and women who watched their friends and lovers fall: ignored by public officials, religious leaders, and the nation at large. Confronted with shame and hatred, they chose to fight for their right to live. We witness the founding of ACT UP and TAG (Treatment Action Group), the rise of an underground drug market in opposition to the prohibitively expensive (and sometimes toxic) AZT, and the gradual movement toward a lifesaving medical breakthrough.
