Green Plaid Shirt is a 2000 gay movie about Philip and Guy who meet at a yard sale while eying the same green plaid shirt. They go on to become a gay couple. It is in the pre AIDS years of late 1970s and so outside relationships are common especially among the gay community. Philip discovers he is not as comfortable with such open relationships as Guy is. Guy moves on with another man but tragically dies of AIDS in 1988.
