In India, how do you find love if you are HIV-positive? Dr. Suniti Solomon, who discovered India’s first case of HIV in 1986, and founded India’s premier HIV/AIDS clinic finds a way, by matchmaking her HIV-positive patients. Shot over eight years, Lovesick interweaves Dr. Solomon’s personal and professional journeys with the lives of two patients: Karthik, a reticent bachelor, and Manu who, like many women in India, was infected by her first husband. Told with humor and compassion, Lovesick is a surprising and hopeful story about the universal desire for love.
