Plot: Inspired by a true story, an electrician in 1986 Texas is blindsided by being diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. With the U.S. still internally divided over how to combat the virus and restricting medications, the man bands together with an unlikely community of outcasts and tracks down alternative treatments from all over the world, by means both legal and illegal. Together, they form a hugely successful ‘buyers club,’ and in the process transform their lives as they fight for them.
