The Fire Within

2002 TV-14

This documentary from August Moon follows the efforts of Shawn Bowers to find common ground with, and show her deep love for, her AIDS-afflicted husband Bob. Stricken before they met due to a one-time decision to share a needle with someone who, unbeknownst to him, was carrying the virus, Bob struggles to embrace life every day -- a journey Shawn tries to replicate by taking on a grueling 575-mile bike ride over 5 days.
