An experimental attempt to do justice to the possible thoughts of a gay pornography actor, who took his own life at the age of 25.

Between 1988 and 1990 Alan Lambert appears in a total of 18 productions as a porno star. After a break he makes his comeback with a new "improved" body in two further erotic films. In 1991 up-and-coming film maker William E. Jones discovers a publicity photo of Lambert and is instantly captivated. A year later Jones discovers the actor's obituary and decides to make a film about the star.
