Cameroon Fights Back broaches the issue of the war against AIDS from a new and optimistic perspective. Accompanied by journalist Wally Ambroise, the director Franck Sanson travels around Cameroon and realises the astounding mobilization of the Cameroon population to combat this terrible disease. On his travels he meets different people active in the cause and others who have contracted the virus. Interviewing certain celebrities such as Roger Milla (legendary Cameroon football player) and also artists and volunteers strongly committed to the prevention of stigma and misinformation, he portrays a picture of a diseased country whose unlimited human resources seem sufficient to keep the epidemic in check.
