Brandon is a successful businessman in his early thirties who lives in New York. To most around him, Brandon seems cool and introverted, but inside he is wrestling with a powerful sexual appetite; he’s obsessed with pornography and prefers short-term relationships with women that allow him to keep the world at arm’s length.
The grim routine of Brandon’s life is upended when his sister Sissy stops by for an extended visit without prior notice. While Brandon is reserved, Sissy is an outgoing and flashy musician, and she doesn’t seem to care about her brother’s need for privacy.
When Sissy forces Brandon to look closely at his life, he comes to understand the circumstances that made him the man he is today as his veneer of calm begins to crack.
