Red White & Blue | 2010
Erica lives rent-free in the local co-op, but spends her nights trawling the bars and beds of Austin. Damaged, emotionally withdrawn, never really connecting with anyone, and sleeping with multiple men is just what she does--until she meets the older and mysterious Nate, on "honorable discharge" from Iraq. Despite his quiet air of danger, Nate's the only guy who doesn't seem to want to get her into bed at the first opportunity, and the two form a hesitant bond. But one of Erica's casual sexual encounters is about to bite back. Franki is a young, hot-headed wannabe rock star trying to make it big. Looking after a sick mother and estranged from his longterm girlfriend, he "shared" Erica with his buddies one drunken evening. Discovering that he is HIV-positive throws his already crazy world into a spin, and in Franki's eyes there is only one person to blame.
