Despite comprising only about 13 percent of the U.S. population, African-Americans represent nearly 60 percent of those infected with HIV/ADS. House on Fire explores the nature of this epidemic, its causes and how the community is positively responding to it. Both a call to action and a tribute to the power of communal unity, the film features the men, women and children who are infected with HIV and others who are affected by it. It also features notable personalities such as poet Maya Angelou, NAACP President Kwaasi Mfume and U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher.
