A model queer activist, plague
poet and community advocate, neurologist
Jesus (Maximillian Davis) prides himself in his work with the Seattle LGBT community. At the same time, Jesus is having unprotected sex and cheating on his long-time partner (Samonte Cruz). Jesus’s world implodes when he discovers that he is HIV positive, forcing him to confront his innermost fears, his relationship with his ex-boyfriend, and a future living with HIV. Faced with the unknown, Jesus is pulled from the brink of self-destruction by Sister Alysa Trailer (Brian Peters), a drag nun who leads him down a path of self-discovery.
“Bursting with the raw energy of an almost cinema-verite-like feel and gorgeous poetic narration, HEART BREAKS OPEN is a stunningly moving film.”
Scott Cranin (Dorothy’s Closet)
“HEART BREAKS OPEN is a triumph for the LGBT community as it combines prevailing elements of responsibility, intervention, accountability and heartbreak with an underlying but indubitable message of love.”
Dara Kim (LAAPFF)
