The risk and adrenaline rush of skydiving can heighten the feeling of being alive. In this compelling documentary, five HIV-positive gay men spend a week preparing for their first solo parachute jump. The camaraderie inspired by the rigorous training and team-building exercises encourage the men to share their feelings about being seropositive: their reactions to finding out, their thoughts about ongoing treatments, and the ways they negotiate relationships with men who are not positive. But as the skydiving day approaches, doubts emerge. Will they all make the jump? Filled with humour and breathtaking aerial photography, ALIVE! reminds us all of the value of life and of living it to the fullest.
