Nurses On The Inside details the stories of two nurses who witnessed the frontline of the early years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Although some of the names, locations, and events have been changed or dramatized, it is important to remember this: this is what really happened to them, and it happened not only to them in New York, but in San Francisco, LA, Miami, and dozens of other cities in the US. Ellen and Valery were not alone, there were hundreds of nurses who went through this experience. They want to tell this story to give a voice to a generation lost, allowing the world to remember. This history cannot be repeated.
