Jeffrey Drew is putting his life on the line to try and help find a cure for HIV. There are 38 million people living with HIV – and while treating HIV is huge business for big pharma, finding a cure is not. Medical trials are being done in secret, out of reach of pharmaceutical companies that may try to shut them down. Jeffrey is participating in such a trial. Only his closest friends know. He does not inform his doctors, yet lets filmmakers into his life as he reveals his reasons for participating, and the ramifications he has to contend with during the process.
