Storyline

In Brooklyn, New York, the former crack addicted Ana Wallace is HIV positive and is a volunteer in the Life Support, an organization that promotes a fight against AIDS in the African American community. Ana wanders through the streets handing out condoms and helping people with AIDS through lectures and advices. She lives with her mate Slick, who has transmitted AIDS to her, and their little daughter Kim. She has lost the custody of her older daughter Kelly that lives with her estranged mother Lucille. When Kelly's childhood gay friend Amare, who is sick and rejected by his sister Tanya, vanishes on the streets of Brooklyn, Ana seeks him out and tries to save him. Meanwhile Lucille decides to move to Virginia with Kelly, and Ana reflects about her life and the relationship with Kelly. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A Movie Everyone Should See
15 June 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Life Support takes a frank and interesting look at the AIDS epidemic and its effect on African-American women and other people in the United States today. The plot moves along well and the acting is very convincing; Queen Latifah leads a fine cast and the cinematography is excellent. Life Support truly proves that Queen Latifah can not only handle a serious dramatic role--she can truly make it into a tour de force. How can ANYONE not relate to this movie ?? Awesome story , Impressive acting by Queen Latifah along with 2 of Diana Ross's children . Tried to hold back tears on this one !! A must have for your collection !!
