About the film:
"Expect a Miracle," is the dual story of the AIDS crisis in San Diego and Fraternity House - the only hospice in North San Diego County that took patients near death to give them a safe place to die with dignity and love. The riveting film centers on a handful of everyday people who became heroes, caring for a marginalized and persecuted population in a time of heightened fear, misinformation and mass rejection from their families, society and the government. As scientific advancements progressed, changing the nature of the disease, Fraternity House also changed its general purpose- now giving the same population a place to re-learn how to live. And how to love.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
