This is the story of Lenny, played by Rolando Chusan, lover and life partner of Paulo Cotillion, the world famous ballet dancer who is lying in a hospital bed dying of aids.
After Lenny has transferred Paulo to the hospital from their home, the family and legal wife, Karen, played by Solonje Burns, have taken over and with the pretext of hospital rules, Lenny, for not being the spouse, is banned from his beloved's deathbed, and thus condemned to homophobia, hypocrisy and greed.
