The Night Listener

A gay talk-show host has recently broken up with his lover. He switches his attention to a young listener, who has a sorry tale of child abuse, syphilis and now a terminal case of AIDS. When the boy is not available, his mom stands in for him. The DJ is intrigued by the pair and decides to meet them both, but that proves problematic. His suspicions aroused, he starts snooping around, leading to surprising revelations...
