Plot Summary
This revealing documentary looks at the sordid life of 1970s porn star John Holmes. The film examines his modest rural beginnings and details his initiation into the porn industry, where he rose to a remarkable level of fame, thanks in large part to his "Johnny Wadd" film series. Unfortunately, Holmes couldn't handle his success, a point driven home by interviews with his friends and family, and this led to numerous problems, including drug abuse and even involvement in a murder case.
