When their father dies, estranged brothers Theo (Cubitt) and Ryan (Feore) are reluctantly reunited. Theo is out of rehab and hoping to make a fresh start with ex-lover Sarah (West) but it's his "perfect brother" Ryan who has some revelations. The overly responsible, successful lawyer reveals to his younger bro that he is gay and dying of AIDS. They try to set aside old rivalries as one struggles to start over and the other struggles with facing his mortality. Strong drama with two exceptional lead performances, although the story is simple and somewhat old-fashioned.
