Description: Meet Bilantanya Moses Bakeyemba, a successful individual from Bongoland living in the United States. We enter his story in the middle of his years of plenty. He holds job as a senior marketing manager for a multinational corporation. He marries Salome, also a successful career woman from Bongoland. Soon they're expecting their first child. All is well until Bilantanya's former girlfriend, who does not approve of his new wife, attempts to rekindle the fire. Bilantanya's life spirals out of control. He learns he's HIV positive and when his health deteriorates and he senses death is near, he must face everyone around him. He begs for forgiveness for his mistakes -- selfishness, arrogance, infidelity and betrayal. Praying to God, he pleads for some way to make things right and for a chance to see his son born. As a part of the broader scope of "Tusamehe," a sub-theme of the story draws attention to the grossly uneven spread of AIDS across the globe, a disparity that has left many people in developing countries helpless. To make matters worse, many hold false assumptions about the people with HIV in these countries. They blame victims for making poor choices as if they have the power and resources to make any "choice," good or bad.
