Matthew McConaughey stars in the incredible true story of a man who takes on the medical establishment after being given 30 days to live. Texan electrician and rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) certainly grabs life by the horns. But in 1985, this hedonistic (and homophobic) hellraiser is abruptly stopped in his tracks. Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner) delivers an HIV positive diagnosis that gives him just a month to live. Macho Ron refuses to accept his death sentence and embarks on an extraordinary entrepreneurial journey. Investigating alternative treatments, he begins to smuggle unapproved anti-viral drugs from Mexico to help others as well as himself. This incurs the wrath of the government and pharmaceutical companies, but Ron acquires a surprise ally in the form of a self-destructive transsexual named Rayon (Jared Leto). Based on real events, this inspiring tribute to one man's indomitable spirit is set against the backdrop of the battle for effective AIDS medication.
