Ex-porn star and cutthroat businesswoman Julia Giovanni is intent on building her adult film company into a financial gold mine. Despite the usual hazards that plague most actors in the porn business, Julia is still fiercely protective of her girls, her projects, and herself. But even she knows she is fighting an uphill battle against the rampant drug abuse that threatens every aspect of their lives.

Behind the scenes at Giovanni Films, Julia’s husband, Boyd, enjoys the lavish excesses their lifestyle affords; yet he is growing tired of babysitting his brother, Pete, who longs for the simple existence of years past when all three survived the streets with little more than their wits and a fresh supply of drugs. Meanwhile, Julia is focused on Lillian Cardinal, a beautiful Native American whom she hopes will be her next star—if she can hold together the unraveling threads of her home life and leave the stripper’s spotlight behind. Unfortunately, Julia is about to take on a secret project that she has no idea is laced with deception.

In this raw, gritty tale that exposes a dark and realistic glimpse into the porn industry, only time will tell if a headstrong entrepreneur can rescue her company—and all those she loves—before it is too late.
