An electrician in Dallas is diagnosed with HIV and is given an expected lifetime of 30 more days. They try to lure him into making him join the candidates for testing an HIV antivirus AZT which he later comes to know to be a counter-productive drug through an unorthodox Mexican doctor. He gets treated by the doctor for some days & tries to stealthily carry the medicines across the border to set up a Buyers club and gradually, in partnership with a fellow HIV patient, gets relentless in stepping up the revolution against the state & FDA’s exploitation of patients through their administering AZT for business reasons.
