Tommy (Steve Braun) is a sexy, blond, gay activist who meets the handsome, muscular Alan (Larry Sullivan), a closeted Republican, at a party in 1973. An intense love affair ignites, setting in motion a torrid and unpredictable relationship that steers its way through the turbulent political and social climate of the '70s and '80s. The Trip blends farce and tragedy, fantasy and reality, and features a quirky cast of supporting characters including indie-fav Alexis Arquette, comedienne Julie Brown and former Bond-girl Jill St. John as Alan's outrageous mom.
