Seventeen-year-old Rachel Sandler (Andrea Bowen, Desperate Housewives) is shocked out of her carefree world when word spreads through her upper-middle class community that Jason, a popular athlete who recently died, was an IV drug user. But its a mysterious computer message that really hits home: Jason, who Rachel had unprotected sex with, may have been HIV positive. Wanting to learn more about HIV, Rachel is urged to visit the local AIDS clinic by her new substitute teacher, Sarah Bennet (Jennie Garth (90210). While there, Rachel takes a rapid AIDS test, put panics and leaves before learning the results. When Sarah discovers Rachels test is positive, she breaks the shocking news to her, later revealing to Rachel that she herself has secretly been living with HIV for more than seven years. While both women wish to keep their privacy, they soon find out that with todays technology of instant messaging, cell phones and blogs, gossip--just like the disease--can spread fast and furiously.
