Four short fictions urgently address India's alarming rate of Aids cases, within star-laden entertainment. In The Beginning, a truck driver (Prabhu Deva) meets a boy searching for the mother who left him when she learned they were HIV-positive. In Blood Brothers, Siddarth plays an HIV-positive man whose life falls apart. In Migration, Mumbai go-getter Abhay leads a double life, with his wife, Divya, and a gay lover. Impoverished farmer Birju impregnates the neglected Divya, while his own wife and baby test positive. In Positive, a son returns home to nurse his once-philandering father, who is dying from Aids.
