For the past 30 years, women around the world have been on the move to tear down the forces that would silence them. Forgotten and overlooked in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, these women, particularly women of color, are fighting to destroy the myths and stigmas that surround this disease. Following the lives of present day activists around the world, this documentary charts the fight of women living with HIV/AIDS while also exploring the historical blind eye turned toward women during this long epidemic. Through education, medical and emotional support, and government action, these women will not stop until their voices are heard and HIV/AIDS is eradicated.
