When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?

While "Pushing Dead" offers an insider’s view of one man’s life with AIDS, it’s also a universal story of people finding ways to love first then live with the relationship later. From the offbeat to the painfully banal, the struggles of coping with mortality are explored in a film about being strengthened by a challenge, not weakened by a disease.
