An 11-year-old boy (Joseph Mazzello) contracts AIDS from a blood transfusion and his best friend (Brad Renfro) concocts ”cures” for his ailing buddy. The two have some adventures, and then the sick boy dies. Mazzello and Renfro make a moving couple. The film moves us to tears about the nature of friendship; yet, curiously, it makes us not care about the deadly illness that kills friends.
