Each year 450 new cases of HIV are diagnosed in the Memphis area leaving many asking, is there life after HIV?
"Love Choice", a short film (50 minutes) and love story written and directed by Memphis Director Phil Darius Wallace and produced by the Caritas Village, explores one man's struggle to answer that question. The project is funded by a grant by the Mid-South AIDS Fund.
Harry Taylor is a corporate playboy who contracts HIV. Depressed and feeling like his life is over, he quits his job and contemplates suicide. While sleeping in his car and working at a coffee shop, he meets the woman of his dreams, Nowella Hernandez. Nowella takes a strong liking to Harry but does not know he is HIV+. Harry is afraid to tell her. After being overcome by his love for her, he finally tells her which results in a conflict that can only be resolved with a statement by the Cafe owner, "the one who saves you, loves you."
