Status: Script

 

SYNOPSIS

In the vein of Leaving Las Vegas except the drug of choice is sex…  John Ledger is a serious character-study of one man’s descent into sex addiction and how it affects his family, his business and friends.  John Ledger is a middle-aged Southern Californian car dealer, who chases the demon of sex addiction while trying to maintain a normal life with his wife, Mary and their teenage son, Brian. John has multiple affairs, romps with prostitutes and various risqué sexual encounters which feed his uncontrollable lust for “The Big O.”  He loses touch with reality, gets arrested then involved with a teenage drug addict and moves further away from his family and any type of spiritual life.  A friend tries to help, even a local priest, but John’s denial is stagnant until he’s beaten by a street hustler and hospitalized.  At stint at a sex addiction recovery program seems to relieve some pain then his life goes in another direction with many lessons along the way.
