In 1985 Dallas, Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey)—an electrician and rodeo cowboy portrayed as having homophobic views—is diagnosed with AIDS and given 30 days to live. He initially refuses to accept the diagnosis, but remembers having unprotected sex with an intravenous drug user. Ron quickly finds himself ostracized by family and friends. At the hospital, he is tended to by Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner), who tells him that they are testing a drug called AZT—an antiviral that is thought to prolong the life of AIDS patients, and the only drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for testing on humans. Saks informs him that in the clinical trials, half the patients receive the drug and the other half are given a placebo, as this is the only way they can determine if the drug is working.
