In rural Tanzania, Pili works the fields for less than $2 a day and struggles to keep her HIV-positive status secret. Offered the chance to rent a sought-after market-stall, Pili is desperate to have it. But with only two days to get the deposit, she must make difficult decisions with ever-deepening consequences. Based on the real life stories of the women in the film, which features only one trained actor and 70% of the cast living with HIV. Produced by Sophie Harman and directed by Leanne Welham.
