The film follows a nephew’s search to uncover the truth behind his infamous and controversial great-uncle, J.J. Proferes, Washington, D.C.’s forgotten king of porn. J.J. was instrumental in the gay rights struggle of the 1960s and 70s and his rise to becoming the “Sultan of an X-Rated Empire” is an untold story of a man who lived life at its extremes. The film shines a light on the gay scene of the 60s and 70s, the history of gay rights amid the rise of obscenity laws in America, ending in J.J.’s bizarre life being turned on its head.
