In 1985, Texas rodeo cowboy and electrician Ron Woodroof is living a freewheeling lifestyle filled with smoking, drinking, drugs and casual sex. Suddenly, it comes to a full stop when he is diagnosed as HIV-positive and given only 30 days to live. Refusing to accept his death sentence, he begins extensive research to better understand the disease and how to combat it. With the only FDA-approved drug AZT having little effect and resulting in his near death, he seeks out alternative therapies and smuggles unapproved drugs into the U.S. from wherever he can find them despite the concern of his doctor Eve Saks. Although Ron is a homophobic outsider to the gay community, he finds an unlikely ally in Rayon, a transsexual AIDS patient who shares his lust for life. Together, they establish a hugely successful “buyers club” to sell these treatments to a growing number of HIV-positive people who have no time to wait for the medical establishment to save them. However, soon its popularity is brought to the attention of the FDA and pharmaceutical companies and an all-out war is waged against Ron and his Dallas Buyers Club. In the years following his diagnosis, the Lone Star loner fights for his and others’ lives like never before, living life to the fullest.
