Summary
"Directed by award-winning filmmaker Rory Kennedy ("American Hollow, " "A Boy's Life"), this theatrical version of the HBO series takes us from Uganda to India, Brazil, Thailand, and Russia to reveal five remarkable stories of people who have been touched by AIDS. From James, a seven-year-old Ugandan orphan who is taking care of his little sister Jessica, to Lek, a former sex worker in Thailand, these stories are both heartbreaking and uplifting. Ultimately, Pandemic is a film about hope, not defeat."--Publisher's website
