FILM DESCRIPTION

Shortbus explores the lives of several emotionally challenged characters as they navigate the comic and tragic intersections between love and sex in and around a modern-day underground salon. A sex therapist who has never had an orgasm, a dominatrix who is unable to connect and a gay couple looking to open up their relationship all converge on a weekly gathering called Shortbus, a mad nexus of art, music, politics and polysexual carnality.

Shortbus tells its story with sexual frankness, suggesting new ways to reconcile questions of the mind, pleasures of the flesh and imperatives of the heart.
