Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of Sydney’s hedonistic gay party scene of the 1980s, Chain Reaction is the story of a group of society’s outsiders who battle Australia’s deep-seated conservatism, in a race against time to save themselves and their communities from the AIDS epidemic. As the rest of the world ignored their own crises and sat on their hands as the death count rose, a small group of courageous and tenacious Australians decided that this would not happen here. Against huge opposition and fear they worked to put in place policies that set the gold standard for HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment and saved tens of thousands of lives. This is their story.
