“NY84” follows the adventures of three young artists in New York’s early-'80s downtown scene, providing an intimate glimpse into the creative and emotional lives of Kate (Sam Quartin), Anton (Chris Schellenger), and Keith (Davy J. Marr). Young and carefree, the friends party, photograph, paint, sing, and play their way through the clubs and lofts of Alphabet City. But the party ends in 1984, when Anton and Keith contract a mysterious illness — then known as the “gay cancer” — just as Kate’s music career takes off. In trying to save her friends, Kate joins the loving caregivers of other infected patients as they begin the long struggle to combat the widening AIDS epidemic.
