This is the story of a small black boy and his indomitable white mother’s courageous battle against Aids. Nkosi’s biological mother was dying when Gail Johnson took the two-year-old into her home.
We are shown a moving portrait of a fight that is both intensely personal – as mother and son work to keep Nkosi’s ailing immune system from collapsing – and regrettably political, as they engage government policy and the ignorance of a sector of their community. Nkosi has become an international icon on issues related to HIV/Aids and children’s rights. He was posthumously awarded The World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of Children - commonly referred to as ‘The Children’s Nobel Prize’.
