The country has just experienced a very violent sexual revolution, which in turn has led to a real explosion of intimate relationships among young people. Along with this, there is another event, no less global. Throughout the country, doctors are beginning to record cases of previously unseen disease. It affects a person from the inside, completely destroying his immune system. The new disease is very dangerous, because it makes the patient defenseless even before the most harmless infection, for which doctors initially consider it a new type of cancer. For the study of the disease is taken by a huge number of doctors, among whom is a young, ambitious Dr. Emma Bruckner. Soon after the beginning of the research, it becomes obvious that this is not a cancer, but a completely new infection, which as a result is called AIDS – acquired immune deficiency syndrome. One day Emma is approached for help by a concerned writer named Ned weeks, who later becomes an ardent activist, and does everything possible to raise the problem of AIDS in society.
