This documentary recounts the life of the highly influential but not very popular Richard Berkowitz, a man who revolutionized sex, by promoting safer sex with fewer partners as a means to avoid the spreading of AIDS epidemic, especially among gay people.
In the 80s, Richard Berkowitz, his friend Michael Callen, and Stephen Sonnabend, a controversial AIDS scientist and virologist, begin a campaign of warning and informing people from gay communities about the dangers of unprotected anal sex.
