Sam (Alan Cumming)is a troubled New York-based artist. A survivor of the AIDS epidemic, his loft is full of souvenirs and memories of former lovers, along with evidence of his time as an activist in ACT UP. He meets a young man, Braeden (Zachary Booth) in a bar and assumes that because of his youth the only reason for him to pursue a sexual encounter is a commercial one. However, it turns out to be the catalyst for a new phase in his life as an artist. Through Sam, a generation deals with the unresolved trauma of loss for those who lived through the 1980s and 1990s. Sam’s grief and anger turn into a sharing of knowledge and experience, expanding the possibilities of intergenerational understanding.
