Streaming service Paramount+ announced today that Three Months, a feature film produced by MTV Entertainment Studios starring out actor and pop star Troye Sivan (Boy Erased), will be available to stream exclusively on the service starting Wednesday, February 23.
Three Months is described by the streaming service as “a coming-of-age comedy-drama that tells the story of Caleb [Sivan], a South Florida teen who loves his camera, his weed, and his grandmother.”
Right before he graduates high school, however, Caleb finds out that he’s been exposed to HIV. The film then follows Caleb in the three months he waits for test results to come back to see if he has HIV or not. Along the way, he finds love “in the most unlikely places.”
