It's All Hallow's Eve. A trio of costumed misfits with very special dietary requirements seizes a Mexican cantina and force the staff to engage in a late night of gaming, food and libations. The only caveat is what's on the menu.
When a struggling writer, HIV positive for 20+ years, accidentally deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much. In this new era of sort-of universal care, can he take on a helpless bureaucracy or come up with $3000 a month to buy meds on his own?
This was billed as a comedy, I watched half an hour and it was anything but such. If it had been billed as HIV dramatic comedy, I'd have understood. The emphasis is always on medication with the underlying political content of U.S. medical care / drug prescriptions not doing enough or the right thing for those afflicted. Is this really singular to them rather than other serious medical conditions. Before any scream Homophobia, learn what phobia means. I don't fear or hate homosexuality, I don't understand it, but accept and respect their choice. HIV is the most fearsome STD, if anyone says it's God's judgement, I damn them and their God. I just feel this film didn't know how it wanted to handle this subject.
