The 24th Day | 2004
It's been 24 days since Tom, a married man who has lived his life as "straight," finds out that he is HIV-positive. Consumed with sorrow and rage about his situation, Tom sets out to find Dan, the only man he's ever slept with and the person he believes is responsible for giving him the virus. Tom's violent kidnapping and murderous threats clearly pass the bounds of legal and rational behavior. And yet, if Tom's conviction about Dan is true, then Dan is accountable for more than a minor moral lapse. The story sets off a host of explosive questions: What moral responsibilities do we have to one another in the age of AIDS? Are we only answerable to ourselves? Is there such a thing as absolute "truth"?
