A macabre and multi-layered parallel-universe satire about the AIDS epidemic, at once blackly comic and deadly serious. Praunheim’s targets include the media, scientific and therapeutic establishments, AIDS revolutionaries intent on spreading the virus, and a government that plans to deport the infected to an island paradise known as Hellgayland. With Praunheim in a lead role as a reactionary gay bath-house owner.
