A documentary that will touch your heart and conscience.
11 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Warning: This film will move you and is unlike any documentary I have ever seen. It's main character is an adorable little boy named Travis and the film follows him from from age 6-9. It puts a human face on HIV/AIDS, and helps the viewer understand the complexing medical side of HIV through the eyes of Travis' grandmother, who has cared for him since infancy. This kid has more heart and guts than most adults I have ever known. And when he speaks (very candidly) to the camera, you feel/see his pain, and smile when he has a "good day". I've seen this 3 times and cannot recommend it enough. It was nominated for an Oscar, so that should give an indication of just how good it really is.
