Trailer trailer



In this emotional drama, a successful, well liked attorney at a large Philadelphia law firm learns that he is HIV positive. Though previously well respected, the extremely conservative senior executives at the firm creatively seek out a way to terminate his employment because of his suspected disease and homosexuality. Based in a time period where AIDS and/or HIV were still very controversial, the paranoid mindset of his coworkers was a general fear of contacting this deadly virus from their associate. With the help of another attorney, he starts a lawsuit against the firm for his wrongful termination based on discrimination. Time is of the essence as he wants desperately to see this case through to the end, before this deadly disease takes his life.
