Sixteen-year-old Tracy, who lives in Uganda, carries a big secret. On the outside, you can't see it, but she is infected with the HIV virus, which she got from her mother at birth. Every day, Tracy takes medication to prevent her from becoming seriously ill and getting AIDS. Because Tracy's parents died from the virus, she lives with her grandmother.

In her village, no one knows she is HIV positive. She doesn't even dare to tell her best friend, with whom she shares everything else. In Uganda, many people are afraid of the HIV virus. They think it can be passed on by touching someone who carries the virus, and believe that, once infected, your life is over. That is why Tracy's mother made her promise not to tell anyone. Her mother was afraid that no one would dare to get near to her and that she would be isolated. But Tracy is worried about her health and feels the need to share her secret. She decides to no longer keep it to herself. But what will happen if she tells someone?
