Two dancers work together, rehearsing new steps, searching for ways to express themselves through movement and their own bodies. They are in love. They live together, work together, do everything together. Then one of them starts to wonder: have we become one person? Ward 11 explores the intimacy between two artists; their home and their rehearsals; their illusions, dreams, and troubles. One of the dancers suffers from AIDS and feels treated like a prisoner. Shot through with frustration and struggle, the film confronts the nightmare of illness; yet it is also a celebration of the beauty of unconditional love, a reflection on solitude and resistance in the face of illness, and a defence of the art of dance.
