HARMFUL SENSATIONS follows a young gay man, known only as “R”, adrift, addicted to nightlife, drinking, and risky behavior meets another man one night at a bar. They have a one night stand and R contracts a nasty bug; a mysterious infection. So begins a surreal nightmare; a descent into madness and brutal violence, ending in a shocking climax.
