Alan Cumming will presented with the 2017 FRAMELINE AWARD prior to the screening.

Struggling with survivor's guilt from the early years of HIV/AIDS, Sam (Alan Cumming, in one of his best performances to date) is bewildered by a younger generation of carefree gay men with their social media, sexting, and seeming political indifference. But when he meets the seductive young Braeden at a bar, their pants quickly come down and, eventually, so does Sam's ossified guard.
