The thin veneer of youth, money, good looks and love are shattered when David is diagnosed with HIV. With his pregnant fiancée kept in the dark, David confronts the realization that he may have infected them as well. Sessions with a therapist become a narrative device that filmmaker Stephen Lloyd Jackson uses to document David’s descent into hedonistic despair.
'David Is Dying' has scooped 8 international film awards, including a historic double grand jury prize win for 'Best Male Actor' for Lonyo Engele and 'Best Director' for Stephen Lloyd Jackson at the 15th American Black Film Festival (ABFF) in 2011 South Beach, Miami.
