"Awaiting Tomorrow" features young women and men living with HIV/AIDS in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where the ongoing conflict has claimed some five million lives. Through their personal stories, the film explores how the effects of HIV/AIDS on their lives are compounded by the conflict and insecurity of the region. Facing stigma in their families, lacking adequate nutrition and access to health care, these young people bravely confront the disease and "await tomorrow." They advocate for national and international policy to provide critical assistance to those living with HIV/AIDS and for outreach on testing and prevention. "Awaiting Tomorrow" is an urgent call to action by people living with HIV/AIDS in war-torn DRC to confront the disease that is ravaging communities throughout Africa.
