This sweeping epic follows adult film star Dirk Diggler from his humble beginnings through his meteoric rise to fame in the 1970s pornography business. Dirk and his co-stars, who become close friends, struggle with the fame, fortune, bright lights, and excitement that rapidly changed their lives. But it's not all good times and parties for everyone, as many of the characters struggle with drug addiction, family problems, and health issues. At times heartwarming and at times tragic, as the story unfolds, Diggler and company learn that celebrity and riches can be taken away just as fast (or faster) than they were given.
