What started as a medical detective story grew into a societal nightmare as first dozens then hundreds and eventually thousands of people all over the world contracted the lethal virus that came to be known as AIDS. It's a story of ignorance and heartbreak, but also one of compassion, courage and dedication. (c) null 2016 Cable News Network, Inc.
