A poetic and grounding exploration into the lives of those affected by HIV in the American South. After 30 years, the global epidemic has overshadowed the fight at home, where HIV has never looked like this before. Facing a broken health system and a culture of denial, Southerners must create their own solutions to survive. A young, black gay man tries to escape the heavy judgment of the Mississippi Delta; two best friends prepare for their annual HIV retreat in rural Louisiana; and, an Alabama activist takes her campaign on the road. Intermixed in these main story lines are several mini-stories that reveal broader social and political themes across the rural South.
