If Britney can get through 2007, then I can get through today.
Benji's mantra has just about got him through his first year with HIV, but it's not so much the virus that's the problem - it's everything that comes with it. Afraid of stigma and rejection, he's stopped going out, he's let himself fall out of contact with his family and God only knows when he last had sex. But that's enough of that. His self-confidence may be at an all time low but it's time he finally grabbed life by the balls and started properly living it again. How hard can it be...?
Inspired by true stories, Positive is a refreshingly honest and ultimately uplifting comedy breaking down the out-dated preconceptions surrounding HIV and the 100,000+ people living with it in the UK today. While it's certainly no sunny walk in the park, it's not the death sentence it was 30 years ago either - and Benji's slowly beginning to realise that the only thing standing between him and normality is not some stupid virus, but his own apprehension. And possibly his terrible taste in shoes.
