This is the story of hundreds of young people born in France, during the darkest period of the AIDS epidemic, before the doctor could prevent mother-to-child transmission of the virus. They were born with it, grew with it, and are surviving with it. With their viral load contained, most of them are now young adults in good health. They have been through a peculiar and painful story, often marked by secrecy. By revisiting the experiences of some of these young people, by accompanying them in their daily life, this film delves intimately into the story of AIDS, and recalls that this disease is still out there. Against this backdrop, it raises the issue of secrecy, when present within family circles.
