5B is the story of everyday heroes, nurses and caregivers who took extraordinary action to care for the patients of the first AIDS ward unit in the United States. 5B is told through first-person testimony of the caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983 at San Francisco General Hospital, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based on humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty.

An uplifting film about profound human decency and generosity of spirit.
