Storyline

Cal is a young writer living in New York when he meets and falls in love with Andre, an aspiring actor. Andre's mother visits from Texas, and has a hard time dealing with her son's relationship and lifestyle, despite Cal's efforts to become her friend. Andre's irascible grandmother is more accepting, but her daughter is intransigent in her disapproval. A call from Cal to Andre's mother in the middle of the night is her first indication that her son was dealing with AIDS - and was against letting her know. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Richard Thomas at his sensitive best. Convincing Convicting some of the dialogue is a bit naff
