Prior, visited by ghosts of his ancestors and abandoned by his lover after his diagnosis with AIDS, is wondering if he is still sane when the angels select him to be their prophet. Powerbroker Roy Cohn also has the virus – but he believes that only the powerless can have that particular illness, and so kicks back against his diagnosis.

In the ‘melting pot where nothing melted’ of modern America, the nation’s reaction to the sickness – and its sufferers – is laid bare.
