The Earth is suddenly affected by a strange illness that infects people with a generalized sexual frenzy, and the only ones who can save mankind are a group of astronauts. The result is a mash-up of hundreds of ‘70s and ‘80s porn films. 

The expression “you’ve seen one, you’ve seen all of them” is usually attributed to film critics about porn cinema. That has never been more accurate than today, in an age of art and technical reproducibility Walter Benjamin would never have dreamed of, where porn has mutated from films into scenes with not much of a story. Embodying the exploitation motto “Now you’ll get to see that thing they didn’t let you see!” –which is about 70 years old– and using a sort of excuse for found footage with the FBI and unclassified files, Nicolas & Bruno take us through an insane journey into that forgotten genre: porn films with a plot. With dubbing as a weapon, at times reminding us of Hiperhumor’s Eduardo D’Angelo, and featuring some thick humor, the French duo builds a bright story where the star of old porn is not the sex, but the acting.
