        In a near future in New York, American society is ruled by a totalitarian government. In order to control AIDS, the HIV positive citizens are tattooed with a P on the chest and sent to quarantine. When teenager Blue accompanies her best friend Laurie to a government clinic for examination, they are advised on the street by boy Willie to not go to the place. While in the waiting room, Blue and Laurie witness the mistreatment of an old lady by the staff and they decide to get out from the clinic. They are chased by security guards but Willie brings them to his brother Torch that hides and protects the girls. Blue learns that Torch is the leader of an underground movement of resistance and the government quarantine is a sham and the patients are left to die in starvation. Blue falls in love with Torch and joins the movement. When Torch is arrested by the police, he is tested and finds that he is positive. He is sent to quarantine and Blue tries to find a way to meet him.

I it is strange as I read through all of the other write ups is the big split between the people who think it was good and the others who think it was not much middle ground, I often think that is the mark of a good film.

Having seen this twice now the first time with nothing to watch flicking around I catch it just as the two girls are running out of the 'testing centre' within 10 minutes I had seen the start of a good story that followed on to the end. Yes it did get a bit thin towards the end but it was a TV movie so I did not expect a $50 million block buster it works for what it was. Even so it still had that ability to show the real problems of parts of society and that if some things are not property addressed that they could easily turn out that way.
