Vikas Adam narrates the story of the fight against AIDS in the U.S. with the urgency the topic demands. As he recounts the early stages of the epidemic, when doctors were unable to connect the victims to each other or to find a way to treat the illness as the death count inexorably rose, his voice reflects the dire situation that PWAs (Persons With Aids) found themselves in. Listeners unfamiliar with these events will be fascinated by the search for treatment and sympathetic with PWAs' frustration with the lack of support from the government and the church. Their horror is reflected in Adam's voice as they are denied research funding for years. At that time, HIV/AIDS was seen as a gay man's disease, even as it spread to larger populations.
