Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters, Tim, Marcus (Jelaini Alladin), Lucy (Allison Williams), and Frankie (Noah J. Ricketts), as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.
