    In Salt Lake City, Utah, the religious monoculture severely complicated the AIDS crisis, where patients received no support from—or were cast into exile by—the political, religious, and medical communities. In the entire state and intermountain region, there was only one doctor to serve all HIV/AIDS patients. This is the story of her fight to save the lives of a maligned population.

    Screening starts at 4:30, followed by Q&A with the film's production team
