Storyline

In Los Angeles, Jaron "Jizz" is a needy teenager that was molested when he was a child and works publishing advertisements for the sex industry. He discounts one hundred dollars in his paychecks to release Tara, who works in a peep-show in Paulie's, for the powerful lord of the sex industry Jimmy Sours. He teams-up with the whore Balery, who is seeking out a partner to steal from a rich client, to raise the necessary money to pay Jimmy. Mr. Garrett is the perverted Health teacher of a high-school; his sluttish students Melody and Courtney like to tease him, crossing their legs while wearing mini-skirts to see him masturbating in his car. Mr. Garrett takes them to join the Internet porn industry and to use pills, and Melody is raped by the sick teacher. The escort Chantel attends kinky clients to satisfy their fantasies and is protected by her pimp Wes. When Wes tries to force the entry in a client's house, the man reacts and the lives of the lead characters are entwined in a tragedy. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Good movie, but not for everyone...
13 April 2013 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Well, this film is not for everyone - I see some other reviews here, mostly negative; maybe not everyone understands it. Good script, good casting, good directing, good camera, good editing, good soundtrack, everything on good professional level. Certainly not a masterpiece, but good craft work, considering low budget.

Maybe this is the film for a limited audience that can evaluate it professionally or for viewers who see life from his shadow side ... at least I give 9/10, because I see a potentially very strong film crew who has done a good job ...

I think that this kind of movies are directed towards a smarter and more sensitive audience that have no illusions about the dark side of life and is not afraid to peek behind it ...
