"In Sub-Saharan Africa, AIDS has orphaned thirteen million children. Many of these children are themselves infected with HIV. They live on the streets, begging for food in the day and sleeping in trash filled lots at night. The 'luckier' ones--between 40 and 60 percent--are being raised by their grandmothers. These older women, many already impoverished after caring for the dying parents, now have total responsibility for raising another generation ... The same crushing burden carried by these African women is also being shouldered by tens of thousands of grandmothers living in urban ghettos in the United States. On top of the diminishments of aging, poor nutrition, and unhealthy lifestyles, these women are suffering shame and grief over the loss of their own children to AIDS, drugs, violence, and prison ... We tell the stories of grandmothers and grandchildren from two model projects, one in Tanzania and one in the Bronx, and show how inspired partnerships can transform situations fraught with confusion and fear into opportunities for renewal and hope. The study guides and supplementary material offered with this film will encourage and empower viewers to replicate these two model projects in other urban communities in the USA and in impoverished communities in sub-Saharan Africa"--Publisher's website.
