Beginning of the nineties. The AIDS has been killing people for about ten years and activists of Act Up-Paris increase the number of actions to fight against the general indifference. New addition to the group, Nathan is going to be overwhelmed by the level of radicalism of some members.

Début des années 90. Alors que le sida tue depuis près de dix ans, les militants d’Act Up-Paris multiplient les actions pour lutter contre l’indifférence générale. Nouveau venu dans le groupe, Nathan va être bouleversé par la radicalité de Sean.

“This is an essential work of cinema with a profoundly moving and delicately crafted love story at its heart.”

“Based on the director’s own experiences, this vibrant and deeply emotional drama rushes with youthful energy, balancing powerful themes of social justice with euphoric moments of spine-tingling sensuality. Urgent and affecting, it’s a film about life, death, love, tragedy – and, above all, the will to survive.”
