Synopsis / Plot
In 1990, Dr. Peter Jepson-Young learned he had AIDS. Believing that "there's no logical end point to education," he began taping a series of two-minute video diaries that document the fullness of his life and offer insights both as a patient and as a doctor. Without sentimentalizing or dramatizing his experiences, the film gives AIDS a human face, and profoundly demonstrates the strength of the human spirit.
1993: Nominated for Oscar: Best Documentary
