Synopsis / Plot
It follows a sprawling group of characters as they navigate their way through the cutthroat New York City of the 1980s, when AIDS began to rear its ugly head. Getting sicker by the minute, Prior Walter (Justin Kirk) is abandoned by his tormented lover, Louis (Ben Shenkman). Deluded lawyer Roy Cohn (Al Pacino) is visited by Ethel Rosenberg (Meryl Streep), a woman he helped to condemn. And the pill-popping Harper (Mary-Louis Parker) is on the verge of losing her sanity when she realizes that her husband, Joe (Patrick Wilson), is a closet homosexual.
