Storyline

Dive head first into the nature of obsession when real porn stars and close friends and family intimately discuss their relationships with Han Sum, lead actor in the controversial film, "Measuring Up: The Erotic Way Of The Samurai." The movie 'Measuring Up: The Erotic Way of the Samurai' and its elusive leading man were only brief shining moments on the often stark background of adult entertainment. With a bold sense of humor and unflinching candor, 'a Study In The Orientation of Han Sum,' shows us not only how but why one person at the right moment in history can burn himself into the memories of those who knew him. Written by Alesha Noice
