B Positive Plot: What is it About?
Drew is a recently divorced therapist who resides in Connecticut. He faces recurring urinary issues and approaches a doctor, who reveals the worst. He is in danger of renal failure. Undergoing dialysis is an option, but the doctor asks him to locate a donor – someone with a B-positive blood group. Drew then attends a friend’s wedding, and this is where he meets an old friend from high school, Gina.
Gina has a big heart, but she is a rambunctious party girl, employed as a shuttle driver for an old-age nursing home. On hearing about Drew’s condition, she offers him one of her kidneys. A test confirms that she can proceed – only if she stops with drugs and alcohol for three months. Gina agrees to try while Drew heads off to the hospital – for his weekly dose of three dialysis sessions.
