- and profiles of survivors.
Near the conclusion of the article, readers are reminded, "In a life defined by a plague and measured in loss and pain, in fear and loneliness, sometimes it’s the smallest steps forward, the briefest moments of gratitude, that matter most. Waking up to the sunlight. Taking someone’s hand."
A brief description of the documentary film reads, "Surrounded by the ghosts of a generation lost to the AIDS epidemic, eight gay men search for meaning in a life they never expected to have." This is the San Francisco Chronicle’s first feature-length documentary, which will be released April 8 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco. A preview of "Last Man Standing" is available online.
