Swimming on the Highway

Synopsis

A self-destructive and anxious 30-year-old man and his 26-year-old friend with a camera. It's a personal film about their relationship in the last years of a life - battling the HIV virus. The flamboyant man flirts with the camera while the filmmaker is tormented, forcing himself to go on filming. Their sincerity when facing the undefeatable facts is moving.
