In the early 2000's Moises is dying of AIDS and requests one last trip with his friends, where intimate secrets are revealed.
His name is Moises, but his friends call him Moe. He’s having a going away party because he's dying of AIDS. He’s a theater artist working on a one man show. He invites his closest friends over for his "going away for good" party, but his plans go awry when his best friend, who has given himself to the Lord, and his ex, who he hasn’t seen in 15 years, show up. All the while his alter ego, a torch singing drag queen, wants to take him for "the ride of his life". First produced for the stage in 2002, Moe (then entitled "Dementia") won the GLAAD Award for Outstanding Theater Production in Los Angeles, and garnered four Ovation Award nominations.
