The film follows a Zambian subsistence farmer named Mutinta who is part of a polygamous marriage where everyone is HIV-positive. With the dangerously high mortality rates for HIV-positive babies on her mind, Mutinta enrolls in an innovative public health program called Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT).
