Here is the synopsis for “Dallas Buyers Club”:

An imperfect man fights for survival during an uncertain time in America. Inspired by true events, Ron Woodroof’s story of strength is told in “Dallas Buyers Club”: directed by Jean-Marc Vallée from an original screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack. Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life character whose self-interest is galvanized into something much more.

A son of Texas, Ron Woodroof is an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V. positive and given 30 days to live. Still, he will not and does not accept a death sentence.

His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments and medications in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico. There, he learns about alternative treatments and begins smuggling them into the U.S. This challenges the medical and scientific community along with his concerned physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Screen Actors Guild Award winner Jennifer Garner).

An outsider to the gay community, Ron finds an unlikely ally in fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Gotham Independent Film Award winner Jared Leto): a transsexual who shares Ron’s lust for life. Rayon also shares Ron’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, they establish a “buyers club” where H.I.V.-positive people pay monthly dues for access to the newly acquired supplies. Deep in the heart of Texas, Ron’s pioneering underground collective beats loud and strong.

With a growing community of friends and clients, Ron fights for dignity, education and acceptance. In the years following his diagnosis, the embattled Lone Star loner lives life to the fullest like never before.
