Introduction: Valentina Stoeva (Bulgaria), student of Legal Studies Department, CEU

AIDS is a global tragedy, striking Africa especially hard. In Libya, five Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor were arrested in 1999 and convicted of infecting over four hundred Libyan children with HIV. Libyan prosecution, operating at the discretion of infamous dictator Moammar Kaddafi, has maintained at the trial the nurses conspired with the American CIA and the Israeli Mossad to maliciously infect the children and undermine Libyan state security. Tortured in order to confess, the six medics have been kept imprisoned ever since and have been sentenced to death.

In this hard-hitting film, Mickey Grant travels to Kenya, Bangkok, Sofia, Libya, Rome and London in an attempt to discover the hidden truths. He follows the trail of syringes from hospital to garbage dump, and then back into Africa's health care system. He interviews leaders of the World Health Organization, Amnesty International, government officials, the Kaddafi opposition, Bulgarian journalists, medical scientists, and health care workers. We also hear from two imprisoned Bulgarian nurses, the son of Moammar Kaddafi, and families of the infected children.
