"Self-effacing, boyish Sean moves to LA to pursue a career in movies but finds it tougher than he imagined.
He stumbles onto porn star Johnny Rebel--a handsome, muscled dream of men and women alike--who awakens Sean's deep obsession.
But Johnny's straight, or so it seems. Although he works in gay porn, Johnny lives with a stripper girlfriend named Babylon who's willful, charismatic and hard as nails.
Sean finds a way to get closer to his idol than even he dreamed possible.
But Sean and Babylon's one-sided, "fluffing" relationships with Johnny are precariously balanced, and can only go so far....
"The Story centers on Johnny Rebel, a porn star with a paradox. Although he is a hot-blooded heterosexual male,
Johnny makes his living as a gay porno star.
The reason: money.
Sean McGinnis is young, naive, adventurous, and pure. Moving to L.A. to pursue a career in movies,
he becomes diverted to working for Hollywood's illegitimate stepchild -- the porno industry.
The reason: Johnny Rebel.
Julie Disponzio, also known as Babylon, is the most fiery of the dancers at the strip club, Leggs.
She and Johnny have been in a relationship for three years. She's hard as nails, willful and charismatic,
and can play power games at Johnny's level, but ultimately she's at a disadvantage.
The reason: She loves him.
Sean gets a job as a cameraman, hoping to be near his porn idol. The first day on the set,
he strikes a curious connection and steps beyond the bounds of his job to become Rebel's fluffer.
While Sean fixates on the icon Johnny Rebel, Babylon deals with his day to day reality.
Johnny just focuses on himself. The sex industry provides the setting for the triangle,
Babylon navigating her prurient clients while Sean negotiates the inhabitants of the porno underworld.
Both submit to, yet struggle with, the role of fluffer.
Both cling ferociously to their self-respect as they go down on their knees.
Both have to reckon with their deepest desires while engaging in a precarious balancing act.
