Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
An emo grocery bagger living with his divorced dad in a low-income apartment complex is gradually drawn into the bizarre world of pornographic fiction in this tale of teenage drama from first-time feature filmmaker Bryan Poyser. Seventeen year-old Wes Slack (Rusty Kelly) was only looking to get laid when he discovered that shady neighbor Dusty Meyer (Gary Chason) is an ex-porn filmmaker who currently makes a living writing for Dear Pillow magazine - a prurient rag featuring sexually charged letters submitted by readers. Fired from his dead-end job and frustrated by his inability to make any real friends, Wes decides to try his own hand at writing due to the fact that he has direct access to his neighbor's most intimate fantasies. Lusty property manager Lorna (Viviane Vives) has a habit of indulging in phone sex from her nearby apartment, and lately Wes has been listening in on every word thanks to the assistance of a powerful police scanner. As Wes begins transcribing Lorna's illicit telephone conversations for submission to Dear Pillow, however, Dusty discovers the true source of his pupil's inspiration and secretly hatches a plan of his own. Now, as harmless fantasy begins to take dangerous root in reality, Wes fast begins to suspect that he has gotten in over his head.
