This is the second part of a two part film that features the same cast, but this time focusing on the environment of HIV and AIDS in West Africa. It's not the only documentary that has been made on this subject, but this is the first to focus on the effects of the disease on the locals and how the West African governments have not done enough to help them. The problem is that these countries are on the wrong side of the world and not doing enough to help them. This is not the fault of the filmmakers, but of the local officials who have not been able to do anything about it. The film focuses on the situation in Sierra Leone, the capital city of West Africa, where the epidemic is very intense and the country is almost completely cut off from the outside world. There is no money to support the clinics or the government, which makes it very difficult for the people to even know about the disease. The filmmakers talk to people in the town, who have all the symptoms of HIV and AIDS, and they do a lot of interviews with people who have been infected and to see if they can identify their friends and neighbors who are infected. This is an interesting and informative documentary that shows the situation in a very graphic way. It's a very personal story and there is a lot of footage from the infected people, who are interviewed by their friends and neighbors, and their families. The movie is very long and shows a lot of footage, so I recommend watching it in a half-day or in the evening. The film is not perfect, but I think it's the best one I have seen that deals with the disease in West Africa.
