John and Noel are in a panic. The condom broke during sex, and John happens to have AIDS. Joanne breaks down when the counselor asks about her HIV-positive husband Robert. In their six-year marriage, Joanne has been tested twice a year, each time more stressful than the last. ONE + ONE takes an unflinching look at the lives of these two couples of mixed HIV status–one straight, one gay–as they navigate the physical and emotional minefield inherent in every serodiscordant relationship. This poignant film gives insights to how serodiscordant couples cope with the difficult task of living with HIV on a daily basis, and the deep bond they share because of it.
