When Anna, an unmarried schoolteacher, is diagnosed with ATD, Acquired Toilet Disease, a fatal new malady with a high risk factor for elementary school teachers, she and her brother Carl take flight to Europe. Anna decides she wants to drown herself in the sensuality of food and sex, while Carl becomes involved in a wild Third Mannish espionage scheme to find a cure for his sister on the Continent. But something is not quite right with the scenario, and the largest hint is dropped when Anna shows slides of their trip to Europe where each frame looks exactly like Baltimore…

Written in 1988 after her brother Carl died of AIDS-related complications at Johns Hopkins Hospital, THE BALTIMORE WALTZ is Paula Vogel’s fantastical and funny love letter to her brother.


“THE BALTIMORE WALTZ is a passionate, infectiously funny, life-affirming gift. – The Los Angeles Times
