In Chicago, Luisa Amaro faces a grim future after finding out that her three adult daughters have tested positive for HIV. In Los Angeles, 26 year-old Sari, her husband and their two-year old son are all infected. This special report examines the devastating consequences of the epidemic and the implications of IV drug use as it relates to the spread of HIV infection among Latinas with Aids.
