Storyline

After winning Tribeca's Best Documentary Feature Award in 2011 for her remarkable debut, Bombay Beach, and screening work-in-progress selections from LoveTrue at TFF 2015, director and cinematographer Alma Har'el returns with the premiere of her anticipated sophomore feature. This genre-bending documentary brings Har'el's signature poetic imagery and fascination with performance in nonfiction to three complimentary stories that seek to demystify the fantasy of true love. Using an atmospheric blend of follow-along footage, artful camerawork, and scenes depicting the past, present, and future of her subjects, Har'el follows three complicated, real-life relationships as they unfold in distinct corners of the country. Alaskans Blake and Joel pursue a promising romance, in spite of physical limitations and her stripping career. In Hawaii, free spirit Coconut Willie discovers another side of true love after realizing his son is not biologically his own. And singer/songwriter Victory ... Written by Anonymous

No pun intended of course. But you do have different people with different interests in this. And a lot of Striptease/stripping going on, and an examination of relationships and feelings towards each other. So the director obviously has done documentaries before and does know where to go with certain themes the movie handles.

There is a certain amount of nudity, though nothing to get you excited, there are other movies for that. We also get a variation of people and body types, not just character wise. So if you can handle the "real" drama and want to watch something close to life, you will get exactly what you paid for
