Watch Zero Patience
- 1 hr 35 min
Zero Patience is a surreal musical film featuring the ghost of the man who is claimed to be known by the Centers for Disease Control as the original carrier, or “Patient Zero,” of one of the world’s largest HIV outbreaks. Patient Zero returns to life to find his friends afflicted by AIDS and his memory vilified by the role he allegedly played in spreading the disease. Patient Zero explores the nature of his new reality through a variety of musical numbers. In doing so, he eventually comes across the still-living explorer Sir Richard Burton, who works through his homophobia to become Patient Zero’s lover.
