Director Rosa von Praunheim explores the reactions of New York City's artistic community to the ravages of the AIDS epidemic and other issues of homosexuality in this haunting documentary.

Artist David Wajnarowicz appears in an unforgettable segment, shaking with anger as he confronts the diseased society that has turned its back on him and all other AIDS victims. Painter Rafael Gamba provides a vengeful indictment of homophobic bigotry. Other segments include Keith Haring sharing his nostalgic longing for the days of carefree sex and Allen Ginsberg's musings on sexual experimentation and attitudes.
