An affecting portrait of a Mormon family confronting AIDS opens the series' 15th season. Director Tasha Oldham follows Kim and Steve Smith, and their teenage sons through Steve's illness, which he contracted through homosexual contact. (Supplementing Oldham's footage are family home videos.) Kim admits to feelings of anger and betrayal. She's also frustrated by insurance snafus, and her own health isn't the best (she contracted the HIV from Steve). And Steve, guilt-ridden, worries about his standing with the church.
