Synopsis

Why do you want to do porn? “They ask Lalo at the casting. “Because I love to fake pleasure.”

Lalo is a little over thirty years old but still living with his parents. No one in his family knows he is gay or that he is in his first movie as a porn actor.

How does your own pleasure become a show?

If a porn actor returns to show his sexuality, where is the real pleasure?
