What runs through the mind of a hypochondriac child who believes he has contracted AIDS after having eaten a hamburger? Over a conversation with his mother, the director, Dominic Bisignano, retells the story of a lasting childhood memory as he perceived it from his youth. Further proof that the animated documentary is a booming sub-genre.
