Zero Patience


In a rather unconventional way, this frivolous musical attempts to figure out the stories about the first HIV patient in North America. Because according to many, he is sort of responsible for all of humanity’s suffering. The same opinion is held by a Victorian sexologist who is collecting all the supporting evidence for his museum of diseases. All goes according to a plan until the ghost of patient zero suddenly appears. The story of one culprit starts getting murky. This surreal film -- which even features water ballet, singing marionettes and cosplay -- tells the true story of HIV which they didn’t tell you at school.
