World of Blue, Land of O. plot
Several dozen people with HIV and AIDS are being treated on Unité 309 in the Sint-Pieters hospital in Brussels. Some recover and can leave the hospital after a while, others die there. Documentary maker Bram Van Paesschen was allowed to spend quite some time in this department and got to know the nursing staff, the doctors and the patients. Many of the patients are of African descent. The taboo about AIDS is even greater in the African environment than it is here: it is not talked about.
