Rich, a young writer who is beginning to find success, is breaking up with his longtime lover, Saul, a professional photographer.

The split is particularly difficult for Saul, who still loves Rich deeply, but the mood is one of bantering and ironic humor as they divide their belongings. However Richs idyll with his new lover is short-lived when he learns that he has AIDS and returns to the goodhearted Saul for sanctuary as he awaits its slow and awful progress. Thereafter the action is comprised of a mosaic of brilliantly conceived short scenes, some profoundly moving, some brightly humorous, which capture the pathos of Richs relationship with friends and family- the cold impersonality of the doctors and nurses who care for him- and the widely diverse aspects of New Yorks gay community for which Richs plight is a chilling reminder of their own peril.

In the end the effect of the play is emotionally overwhelming an honest and unsparing examination of a deeply felt human relationship shattered by a mindless, destructive force which cannot be tempered or turned aside.
