A lonely housewife’s plan to end it all takes an unexpected turn when her last hurrah begins a radical journey of sexual exploration, personal re-invention and feminist porn.
After 20 years as a dutiful homemaker stuck in a loveless, sexless marriage, Morgana has had enough of her dreary life. Desperately lonely and starved of intimacy, she books a male escort for one last flurry of passion before ending it all. Her final night takes an unexpected turn when her relationship with the escort opens up a new world of personal and sexual freedom. After hearing about a competition for first-time erotic filmmakers, Morgana directs and stars in a film, Duty-Bound
, about her own story. Unexpectedly, her film wins, catapulting her into the international feminist porn community. Life merges with art as Morgana uses erotic filmmaking as a tool for creative catharsis, while struggling with demons from her past.
