He seeks professional help to reprogram his sexual desires but in 1977 New York is the glimmering Emerald City at the end of the Yellow Brick Road and Josh finally succumbs to its lure. He moves quickly to make up for lost time in the post-Stonewall years when sex is quick and easy. But that's not enough; Josh wants to be in love. He finds it unexpectedly just as the new decade begins but the growing spread of disease brings the free spirit of the 70s to a crushing end and Josh is forced to navigate the turmoil of an era where beauty, youth, wealth and life itself seem unimaginably fragile.
