More Americans have been lost to AIDS than in all the U.S. wars since 1900. And the pandemic has killed 22 million people worldwide. But few know about the existence of the National AIDS Memorial, a seven-acre grove and sanctuary hidden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. THE GROVE chronicles this garden's transformation from a neglected eyesore to landscaped sanctuary to national memorial. The film shows how a community in crisis found healing and remembrance, and how the seeds of a few visionary environmentalists blossomed into something larger than they could have imagined. But as the Grove's stakeholders seek broader public recognition through an international design competition, a debate emerges about what constitutes an appropriate memorial for the AIDS pandemic. How do we mark a time of unimaginable loss? How do we remember those that could be forgotten?
