Description

Gloria was diagnosed with HIV when she was 13. She is now 18 and trying to live a normal life. However, being HIV positive in a country like Nigeria is an uphill struggle. Facing hostility from her mother, church, community and education, Gloria has had to drop out of university in order to pay for her medication. This film looks at the problems that HIV positive people face, in order to live like any other person, and how they are speaking out against stigma to try and overcome it.
