It’s 1984 and Ryan White is a 13-year-old hemophiliac living with AIDS. When Ryan puts on the headphones to his walkman, he can escape into his own fantasy world where he is the the rockstar of his mind. But Ryan soon becomes a celebrity in the real world: America’s first poster child for AIDS. All he wants to do is to return to school and be normal. It is in the great escape of his fantasy world that he is able to deal with the pressures, problems and hysteria of the real world. Maybe he can live in the fantasy world for eternity, even if his body eventually fails him. Ryan White is told through the eyes of an all-teenage cast.
