An intimate and humanizing look into the world of adult films from a never before seen perspective – from a woman director following a naive Oklahoma housewife as she becomes adult film superstar Stacy Valentine. Shot over six years this is the conflicting story between Stacy Baker (small town girl) and Stacy Valentine (porn star) and her desire for true love.
