A bouquet of flowers adorns the engraved names of AIDS victims at the National AIDS Memorial Grove in San Francisco, California.

"We Were Here" is a new documentary about the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco. Director David Weissman tells this tragic story with a hopeful ending through the voices of five narrators—four men and one woman who like Weissman lived through the epidemic. Host Cy Musiker talks to Weissman about what moved him to tell the story now and what the epidemic can still teach us.
