A father advises his son to be responsible and get tested for HIV before sleeping with his girlfriend. Unwilling at first, the girlfriend finally agrees but goes alone to the clinic. When the moment comes to reveal the results, a lot more is unearthed. Adapting the traditional style of oral story-telling onto screen, In Reality takes us on a sobering journey of hypocrisy, lies and deceit and the adverse impact such behaviour has on the life and health of those involved.
