Set in the free-spirited San Francisco of 1985, Chris Mason Johnson's "Test" lovingly portrays this exciting and harrowing era as young Frankie (dancer Scott Marlowe in a breakout acting debut) confronts the challenges of being an understudy in a modern dance company where he's taunted to "dance like a man!" Frankie embarks on a budding relationship with hunky Todd (Matthew Risch, HBO's "Looking"), a veteran dancer in the same company and the bad boy to Frankie's naiveté. As Frankie and Todd's friendship deepens, they navigate a world of risk--it's the early years of the epidemic--but also a world of hope, humor, visual beauty and musical relief.
