Over 22 million Africans are living with HIV/AIDS. Many call it "living with 'Slim,'"a word used to describe the weight loss associated with the disease. Two million of them are children. Nearly all were infected at birth by mother-to-child transmission and the majority are orphans. They are stigmatized by their families, their teachers, and by other children. Facing life and death health issues, they wish for an education and life-saving anti-retroviral drugs. This film tells their story. The film begins in 2004, when seven African children, ranging in age from 6 to 17, talk openly about what it's like to be HIV positive. The story continues, years later, when the filmmaker returns to Africa in an attempt to find those seven children and document the changes in their lives.
