A former street tough returns to his Philadelphia home after a stint in the military. Back on his home turf, he once again finds himself tangling with the mob boss who was instrumental in his going off to be a soldier.
One-night stand can lead to fatal results!Tom is a living proof!He's a straight family guy whose life turns upside down when he finds out that he has AIDS so he tricks his ex gay lover Dan into an empty flat & ties him up awaiting his blood test results.
Tom refers to the Iowa State "Hawkeyes." The Hawkeye is in fact the mascot of the University of Iowa. Iowa State's sport teams are known as the "Cyclones." See more »
I walk home. I'm all scratched up, I got blood all over my face. I'm crying my eyes out. Anyway, my mother see's me. She runs in screaming, "What happened, who did thisa to you?" So I tell her Stevie Bellow jumped me from behind in the schoolyard while his pals stood there and made sure no one broke it up. So, take a guess what my mom does? She takes me back to the school yard. She finds Stevie, she tells him we're gonna fight again this time it's gonna be a fair fight.

This is another film I purchased without knowing a thing about it, and wound up being quite glad I did. The premise of this film had me on the edge of my seat from the very first gut-wrenching conflict, in a film that was filled to the brim with gut-wrenching conflicts. The acting of both principals in this essentially two-character piece was first rate, and helped to elevate it high above most standard gay-themed fare. But what really made this picture superior to 90% of the gay titles I've purchased in the past year was the confrontation of real issues that gay men should be discussing, but frequently shy away from. Without giving away the plot, let me say that almost every minute of the taught, carefully crafted script is imbued with thoughtful discussion on issues that are all to frequently ignored by sexually active gay men. I didn't see the ending coming at all, and the ultimate, positive and healthy message that everyone is responsible for their own conduct, and the consequences thereof is one that too many people don't seem to get, in my observation. In a world where the madness of barebacking and substance abuse is decimating the gay urban male population, the lesson of this film is one that every gay man needs to consider, if not embrace wholeheartedly. Good god! A gay drama that dares to address and discuss sexual responsibility in an adult manner! What will they think of next?
