BPM (Beats Per Minute) takes place in Paris in the early 1990s, where a group of young activists go into battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. Nathan (Arnaud Valois) joins the movement as an HIV-negative newcomer, quickly falling for the politically energized, restless, HIV-positive Sean (Nahuel Pérez Biscayart). As their romance blossoms, so do divisions within the group, whose more radical factions would see governmental and pharmaceutical institutions torn down rather than let themselves be forgotten.
