San Francisco is preparing for the premiere of a new staging of the Puccini opera, Turandot. The passionate story of the Chinese princess Turandot, and the mysterious three riddles which are the key to her heart, are on the lips of opera buffs throughout the city. At the same time, a serial killer is haunting the gay bars of the city and is killing HIV positive long-term survivors. Stefan, a young gay East German medical student, arrives in the city for a medical congress and is following the trail of his dead father, a once high ranking AIDS researcher in the East. Stefan is investigating whether the HIV virus was an incremental result of secret human experiments that were conducted in US prisons in the seventies - a thesis of the Berlin professor Jakob Segal, which was spread by state agents of former East Germany. Secret lists involving these biological experiments are rumored to have surfaced in San Francisco. Stefans main contact person is being killed in an illegal club, right.
The most amusing part of the movie is the title, because this movie will put you to sleep. This was not that interesting of a movie at all. The story itself was okay, but they just failed at the attempt. It seemed that this movie was more about seeing this German twink shirtless and being dominated by the other man, Jeffrey Russo. Russo was the hot one of the movie. He was just insane, but isn't that the way it is. The hot ones are always super crazy.
The acting in the movie was not bad at all. That was surprising, except for Tom Wlaschiha. His accent or whatever that was, was bad. It was a little hard to understand him at times. He was not that great in this movie.
This is one of those movies that I say skip it. It watches like a bad TV movie. It just is not worth spending the time watching. It is not very good. I watched it, so you don't have to.
