In a London hospital, Piers is dying of AIDS complications. A visitor should be welcome. But this visitor is ex-colleague and close friend Tom from Nairobi and last time they met, Piers was in bed with Tom's wife. As the two men talk, amid recrimination and reminiscence (and humour), the threat of violence is never far away. Piers wants Tom's help to end it all until he discovers Tom was the source of his infection. The gun which Piers has rescued from his nurse's son becomes a potential murder weapon as first Piers and then Tom is tempted to take revenge. The different backgrounds and motivations of the two men and their fatal flaws are exposed as we hear about their joint involvement in the aid world. Reconciliation is finally achieved and Tom leaves Piers to collapse into the arms of the nurse.
