The story started with a duet of lines between Oscar (performed by Koey Foo) and Ming(performed by Phin Wong), a dialogue that is familiar to all gay people. 2 gay lovers charting their 4 year history in a relationship, from days of courtship till the time Oscar decides to break up with Ming after being diagnosed with HIV. As the act moves on, Oscar joins a support group and befriends Daniel, a stereotypical Chinese boy studying business at Harvard. Ming, however, finds new love with his Caucasian headwaiter lover, Robert, in LA. Then later, their relationships turn sour, and they can’t seem to replace their current love interests with the old one. Daniel suffers being Oscar’s substitute for Ming, while Robert trying to make sense of what relationship is when Ming asks that both of them see other people while they are together.
