The AIDS crisis appeared in a flash and threatened the physical and emotional livelihood of entire generations of queer communities. Sam (Alan Cumming), a former member of ACT UP, remembers that pain all too well. Memories of those years pervade his work as an artist and have pushed him to abandon his former work as a painter in favor of a new video project connected to a close friend whom he lost to AIDS. It’s a past he can’t escape, even as other friends seem to move on, until he meets Braeden at a bar late one night. Braeden is young and taking full advantage of the achievements that Sam worked so hard to reach, but their romance may be just what Sam needed to move forward in the changed reality that AIDS activism has created. -AL
