Summary
Living Positive examines the lives of five HIV/AIDS diagnosed women from different ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds (African-American, Latino and Caucasian). What is unique about this film is that it highlights everyday women who just happened to fall into misfortune. It could happen to anyone. The film follows the women over the course of four years. It explores important life lessons about love, strength, empowerment and learning to have faith in oneself. It is about the women s fears, triumphs, families, respective ethnic communities and what life is like for them day to day. Through their stories we come to understand how they have grown from a place of fear to a place where they appreciate the beauty of life and strive to live each day fully. By the end, we learn how to prevent being infected with the HIV virus, what to do if one learns that he or she is infected, and how to live well in spite of it.
