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 she has a night of passionate unprotected sex with him. Through animated 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.
