The Best Is Yet to Come, a film in which some ordinary people infected with the hepatitis B virus joined the acting crew, is on show nationwide and has sparked heated discussion about discrimination hepatitis B patients face.

The film illustrates an intern reporter who attempts to help change the destiny of an individual infected with HBV through news reports.

Cheng Zhuo, who joined as an actor in the film supported by United States-based biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences, is head of a hepatitis B patient community. He said the movie was adapted from a true story. The topic of discrimination against HBV infectors gained much social attention back in 2003 thanks to some journalists' efforts.
