25 TO LIFE tells the story of William Brauner – a Philadelphia based man who kept his HIV status a secret for over 25 years. As a child, Brawner was infected due to a blood transfusion, but told by his mother to keep his illness a secret. And he did, right into adulthood, going so far as to hide his status from sexual partners, friends and more. But when William decides to face HIV head on and inform his former girlfriends, partners and more about his status, he has to face the decisions he’s made directly. Meanwhile, William also learns about what it means to live openly with HIV.

Ron Simons says: “We’re delighted to help bring this intimate, compelling and surprising work to life. The potential to engage, educate and influence choices that could affect the health and lives of young people, makes 25 TO LIFE a timely, important film destined to challenge misconceptions about HIV and the challenges faced by families affected by the disease.”
