Inside Story brings together an all-star, pan-African cast in a compelling story of soccer, love, and HIV/AIDS. The film was produced by the nonprofit Discovery Learning Alliance (formerly known as Discovery Channel Global Education Partnership) in conjunction with Quizzical Pictures.
"An uplifting story of the trials and tribulations of a young man whose dreams of football fame and fortune are jeopardised by an impulsive mistake. Inside Story is a unique feature-length film that combines the exciting story of a rising soccer star with an enlightening animated journey of HIV inside the human body. Beautifully directed, with very strong performances, Inside Story is a remarkably honest account of the impact of HIV and AIDS that recognizes the inspiring fact that we can lead strong and productive lives while living with the virus." -- Toronto Black Film Festival 2013
