Matteo and Riccardo are a couple and they are about to celebrate their sixth month of relationship. The romantic time is interrupted by a tragic news: Matteo discovers he has become HIV positive. After that news everything changes: Matteo, oppressed and disoriented, closes in on himself, meanwhile Riccardo, overwhelmed by fear and uncertainty, refuses to know his serological status. Matteo’s uncle, Enzo, will help the couple to face their fears and they will help in turn Enzo to accept the ghosts of his past.
