The truth is a trap; you can’t get it without its getting you... Bill is a middle-aged divorcee convinced that his wife deserted him because he is a premature ejaculator with a micropenis. Desperate to restore his dignity, Bill lands in therapy with Arleta--an altruistic sexologist whose hands-on method grays the moral line between emotional healing and certified prostitution. Shane--Arleta's younger brother and only living family member--has become mired in a secret affinity for provocative parties and an underground subculture that serves to galvanize his otherwise humdrum existence. When Hannah--a progressive and ambitious documentarian--convinces Arleta and Bill to allow that her camera be turned on the private details of their therapy, a collision of eclectic characters ignites one soul-purging journey in this cringingly authentic dramedy about the universal notion that the truth shall set us free.
