In this semi-silent, black and white film, a young woman in college has
her sights on a man that holds a secret lifestyle that is revealed after

battle scenes we see how the HIV Virus attacks her body from within.
Blended with jazz music and specs of RED colors to symbolize caution, we
see how a pretty face can have rotten insides.
