Plot Summary
Torino (Jason Flemyng) is a young, self-centered dancer whose world is shattered when his lover Ramon (Anthony Higgins) passes away after a battle with AIDS. At Ramon's funeral, Torino meets Ramon's therapist, Jack (Antony Sher), a quiet, older man who sharply contrasts Torino's outspoken, flamboyant nature.
