Set in New York at the onset of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, part one of Kushner's two part epic features three overlapping storylines that form a haunting elegy to the human spirit: Roy Cohen, a corrupt lawyer and closet gay man; a Mormon couple, where the wife struggles through prescription drug addiction and the husband struggles to accept his homosexuality; and a homosexual couple whose once beautiful relationship is forced to endure the battle of long-term illness.
