Gift of Life

This is a four-year photo documentary which follows the final years of Jenni: a young woman with HIV/AIDS. She was 29 years old when she died of AIDS, and her final years teach us that what really matters in our lives is not what we achieve, but how we live. Her husband Jimmy, who married her right after he learned of her illness and her beloved animals (a dog, a cat and a bird) also teach us about love and dedication.
