Frank Moore was a remarkable artist and activist whose life was cut short by AIDS. In figurative paintings filled with fantastic and symbolic imagery, Moore (1953--2002) addressed themes drawn from American visual culture, the state of the health care industry and his personal life. His paintings often explore human effects on the natural environment. During the early 1990's, Moore was also instrumental in the creation of the iconic Red Ribbon as a symbol of compassion for those with HIV/AIDS.

In this short documentary produced in tribute to his life, Moore himself speaks - through interviews, lectures and photographs - with his trademark blend of humor and insight, explicating the meaning of his paintings, the story of the red ribbon, and what motivated him to let his "little light shine" for the benefit of all.
