The year is 1985. Returning to his conservative Texas hometown after three years away working in New York, Adrian aims to reconnect with his younger brother while navigating the rocky relationship he holds with his devoutly religious parents, all the while wrestling with whether or not to reveal his truth: he is both gay and terminally ill. A stark reminder both of how far we've come and how far we still have to go, this is an emotionally devastating portrait of America and acceptance in the midst of the AIDS crisis.
