Plot summary

The Sarnos is an intimate portrait of two radically unique characters: legendary sex film director Joe Sarno – the Ingmar Bergman of 42nd street – and his wife and collaborator Peggy. The film follows Joe for what would be the last year of his life, as he is trying to get one last film project off the ground, a female centered soft-core film in the old Joe Sarno-style.
