Plot:
Paris. John Knot, an American journalist who is writing an article on AIDS and how it affects people’s lives, meets again Joelle, his greatest love. When she reveals she had a daughter from him, he decides to marry her, but during some blood tests he discovers he is HIV-positive. He returns to New York without giving any explanations to his friends and to Joelle.

In New York, he meets a very rich woman (who is HIV-positive too) and convinces her to get into business with him and gather funds to be poured into AIDS researches. Joelle cannot live without him - she discovers the truth and reaches him in New York, ready to share with him their fate.

Notes:
This film was presented at the 1989 Venice Film Festival.

While Lina Wertmüller was more interested in the social aspect of the plot, Rutger wanted to give more emphasis to the love-story.
