Ximei is a young woman from rural Henan Province who contracted AIDS when twenty years ago the government encouraged impoverished villagers to sell their blood plasma for money, literally bleeding people for profit. A million Chinese citizens were infected with HIV and countless died from AIDS. Ximei has dedicated herself to telling the world that in the rural areas of her country hundreds of thousands of people continue to suffer the same as her and do not have clinics, medicines or the treatments they require. Her courageous actions and fiery character transform the tragedy of Henan’s HIV-infected outcasts into lives of hope and dignity.
