SUMMARY

Jonathan Agassi is a highly successful Israeli gay porn star. Director Tomer Heymann followed him for eight years, both in his temporary hometown of Berlin and back in Tel Aviv with his mother. Alongside his film acting, Agassi performs in live porn shows and works as an escort. The filmmaker documented all his activities, and although Jonathan claims he has the best job in the world and says it has actually saved his life, it soon becomes apparent that he’s not particularly happy.
