Summary:The prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV - the statistics, the facts, the people - come vividly to life in this astounding documentary, which follows the lives of two pregnant and HIV positive women lucky enough to be on a drug trial at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. The film charts the lives of Kholiwe (Patience) and Ntombekaya (Pinkie), who have made friends at the clinic's support group for HIV positive mothers as they approach the delivery of their babies. It is about their expectations, hopes, and inevitable fears concerning not only the health of their babies, but the trauma around the disclosure of their status to their families and partners as well. It is also about the unrelenting commitment of the people at the HIV perinatal clinic who are trying to make a difference.
