Synopsis

In another time, at another placeā€¦

Having been gone for three years, closeted advertising executive Adrian (Cory Michael Smith) returns to his Texas hometown for the holidays during the first wave of the AIDS crisis.

Burdened with an unspeakable tragedy in New York City, Adrian looks to reconnect with his teen brother Andrew (Aidan Langford) while navigating his relationship with religious parents Eileen (Virginia Madsen) and Dale (Michael Chiklis). When he reaches out to his estranged childhood friend Carly (Jamie Chung), their unresolved issues force Adrian to confront an uncertain future that will significantly alter the lives of those around him.

Shot on black-and-white super 16mm film, 1985 takes a unique look at a pivotal moment in American history through the prism of empathy, love and family.
