SYNOPSIS When young Stefan’s happy existence on the island of Malta is shattered by his fiancée’s slutty revelation, he goes off to America in search of a new life and emigrates to LA, where he hopes to become a famous carpenter “like Harrison Ford or Jesus”. Mugged on arrival, he is rescued by a porn princess who, in a witty send-up of a country and western number, announces: “My name is Sanddy with a double D.” What he finds in LA is an exciting group of friends in an industry that takes some getting used to. The big-hearted Sanddy initiates Stefan into the adult-movie business, where, under the direction of one Martin Scoresleazy, he proves a fast-rising star. However, unless their latest movie turns out to be highly profitable, the studio will be shut down and so they all embark on a desperate musical adventure that has all the wide-eyed wonder of a Disney movie – but not for kids. Definitely not for kids. The blossoming romance between Sanddy and Stefan is subject to sundry vicissitudes ranging from Martin’s financial desperation to sexually transmitted diseases.
