HIV today is easily treatable. Yet for many young people finding out they are HIV positive creates a crisis, separating them from friends and family. This film looks at how misinformation at school and fear based prevention campaigns impact young people. It looks at how children and young people imagine the virus. The narrator is a film-maker who grew up in the UK with HIV, and now travels to Africa to hear the stories of other young people.
