This is a very intense, thought provoking movie, and one that may bring out intense emotions in the viewer. It is based on a play and is very dialogue intensive, with the majority of the movie taking place in one room.

Plot for The 24th Day
Plot (Warning: May contain spoilers)

Tom (Scott Speedman) and Dan (James Marsden) meet in a bar and then proceed to Tom’s apartment together. While there, Dan realizes that he had been in that same apartment before. Five years earlier, Dan and Tom had a one night stand there. According to Tom, that encounter with Dan was his first and only homosexual experience.

Some years later, Tom’s wife is found to be HIV positive. Despondent after receiving this diagnosis from her doctor, Tom’s wife drives through a red traffic light and is killed in an ensuing collision. Subsequent to these events, medical tests reveal that Tom is also HIV positive. Tom blames himself for passing HIV on to his wife and, in turn, he blames Dan for passing the virus on to him. Reasoning that Dan, ultimately, is to blame for his wife’s death, Tom devises a plan to exact revenge.

He holds Dan hostage, keeping him bound and gagged to a chair in his apartment. He draws blood from Dan in order to conduct a test to determine Dan’s HIV status. If Dan’s test results are positive for HIV, Tom vows to kill Dan. If the results are negative, Tom agrees to release Dan unharmed. In the end, Tom returns to the apartment and lets Dan go.

As Dan is leaving, Tom asks him when he had last been tested. A few moments later, he reveals that Dan’s test was, in fact, positive. He decided to let Dan go because he realized that his positive status was the result of his choices which he couldn’t blame on anyone else. The screen fades with Dan standing in Tom’s doorway in shock.
