Every six months - when anxiety allows him some respite - Filippo goes to the hospital and has his now familiar HIV test. During one of those mornings spent in the waiting room, his eyes furtively meet those of another boy, Simone. While they are waiting for their turn, they keep glancing at each other. It looks like there is a great chemistry between them, and that chemistry slowly turns into a relationship.
