    1985, San Francisco, la “mecca gay” d'America. L'introverso Frankie fa il sostituto in una prestigiosa compagnia di danza contemporanea. Todd, un affermato danzatore della troupe, è apertamente gay. Quando uno dei ballerini un giorno si ammala, a Frank viene chiesto di subentrargli, così Todd lo prepara. Potrebbe la malattia essere “l'epidemia gay”, così come si sta già diffamando l'AIDS? Ignoranza, repressione, panico, paura, pregiudizio e omofobia dichiarata sono diffuse. Rock Hudson muore per complicazioni legate all'AIDS e per chi è infetto si inizia a pensare alla quarantena. In questo contesto, l'amicizia tra questi due uomini così diversi l'uno dall'altro si fa profonda; entrambi sono messi alla prova sia nella vita professionale che in quella privata, tanto che iniziano a maturare un sentimento di solidarietà reciproca. L'aiuto giunge dalla musica del periodo, da Jimmy Somerville e Klaus Nomi a Laurie Anderson e Sylvester. It’s 1985. The location is San Francisco, America’s ‘gay mecca’. Introverted Frankie is an understudy in a prestigious modern dance company. Todd, an established dancer in the troupe, is openly homosexual. When one of the dancers falls ill one day, Frankie is asked to stand in and Todd helps him prepare. Could the illness be the ‘gay plague’ as they are already vilifying AIDS? Ignorance, repression, panic, fear, prejudice and open homophobia are rife. Rock Hudson dies from AIDS-related illnesses and quarantine is mooted for those who become infected. The friendship between these two very different men deepens in these new circumstances; both are subjected to a number of trials in their professional and private lives, as a result of which they mature and discover the meaning of solidarity. Light relief comes in the form of the music of the era – from Jimmy Somerville and Klaus Nomi to Laurie Anderson and Sylvester.
