A popular high school girl wrestles with the possibility she may be HIV-positive after learning that her recently deceased boyfriend was an IV drug user who was apparently infected with the virus. Rachel Sandler (Andrea Bowen) is a 17-year-old girl living an upper-middle-class neighborhood. Her late boyfriend Jason was a respected athlete with a dark secret: he was a heroin addict who preferred to take the drug intravenously. But that's not the worst of it -- according to an anonymous source, Jason was also HIV-positive. Jason and Rachel had been intimate, and now Rachel is terrified that he may have transmitted the virus to her. Implored by her substitute teacher Sarah (Jennie Garth) to get tested, Rachel remains paralyzed with fear until she discovers that Sarah has been living with HIV for nearly a decade. When rumors about Rachel begin spreading like wildfire, she realizes her best bet is to summon her courage and take the test.
