A young actor from Italy and a wardrobe designer from Illinois find each other in New York City at a time when same gender marriages are not recognized by the law. Fed by a pure, unconditional love for one another, they merge souls and skills for a decade. Collecting great highs and deep lows, their life together revolves around 8-shows-a-week both on and off Broadway. A marriage that survives civic discriminations, cultural differences, immigration struggles, and HIV, ultimately finds an unexpected curtain call.
