From "The film: The voices of four of these courageous teachers (Beldina Atieno, Martin Mkug Ptoch, Jemimah Nindo, and Margaret Wambete) detail the challenges they face once their positive status becomes public. These range from stigmatization to shunning and discrimination against them and their families.

Despite the hurdles the teachers face, they are confident that accessing effective care, support and anti retroviral medicines, they are able to live, and to enjoy full and healthy lives. The personal reflections of these teachers offer courage and hope to the other estimated 121,996 teachers living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa."
