Why our high school aged teenagers are getting infected?
Why is teen suicide high?
Rhonda shows how three students in a NYC high school can get HIV.
Rhonda watches her friends make the wrong decisions. She refuses to join Claire with Andy and Justin for an afternoon fling, but overhears Joshua’s tale of woe:
Joshua’s father found out he was gay and threw him off the porch, not allowing him to return home, breaking his arm. He is homeless and hooks up on line with Paul – a 30 year old aging Chelsea boy. Joshua is forced to have sex without a condom. With drugs given to him, Joshua seduces Claire’s romantic obsession, Andy –straight with the lure of ecstasy and poppers.
Jared intervenes and attempts to get Joshua into safe house. There however Joshua learns he is HIV and loses control. He returns to Paul but Paul freaks out that Josh had to hustle to survive after leaving the safe house and Joshua – Joshua takes his life.
Both Claire and Andy become infected and students see – students see how typical high school behavior leads to AIDS.
