Timothy Ray Brown, became the first patient in the world to be cured of HIV at the Berlin Charité hospital. In fact he was cured of both HIV and leukemia, by using stem cell treatment. This documentary tells the story of the sensational treatment and takes the viewer on a journey through the various laboratories across the globe. Using complex animations, the film presents the three, currently most promising research approaches. Paula Cannon at the University of Southern California has already succeeded in curing HIV-infected mice using genetic scissors. In Germany, scientists are working on an enzyme that works like a molecular scissors. Immunologist, Dennis Burton believes that the means to counteract HIV is already present in the human body and that we must simply find it, in order to immunize people.

Only available in the US.
