Rating Summary

In Kokomo, Ind., in the early 1980s, an adolescent hemophiliac named Ryan White (Lukas Haas) contracts AIDS through a routine blood transfusion. The fear and misinformation caused by the then-new disease causes his school to bar him from attending due to worries that he may infect his classmates. With the help of a dedicated attorney (George C. Scott) and a kindly nurse (Sarah Jessica Parker), Ryan, his mother (Judith Light) and his sister (Nikki Cox) fight for Ryan’s human rights.
