“An uplifting film about profound human decency and generosity of spirit.”
– The Hollywood Reporter

5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of the nurses and caregivers who built Ward 5B in 1983, their patients, loved ones, and staff who volunteered to create care practices based in humanity and holistic well-being during a time of great uncertainty. The result is an uplifting yet candid and bittersweet monument to a pivotal moment in American history and a celebration of quiet heroes’ worthy of renewed recognition.

The first Nurse Manager of 5B was Cliff Morrison, ANAC's second National President.
