It's been a decade since Ben (Duplass) and Andrew (Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife, and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist, skipping the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia. When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben's doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship. Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare : to enter an amateur porn contest together. But what kind of boundary-breaking, envelope pushing porn can two straight dudes make ? After the booze and « big talk » run out, only one idea remains-they will have sex together...on camera. It's not gay ; it's beyond gay. It's not porn ; it's art. But how exactly will it work ? And more importantly, who will tell Anna (Delmore), Ben's wife ? _Sundance 2009 : Winner Special Jury Prize for Spirit of Independence _Cannes 2009 - Quinzaine des réalisateurs _Deauville 2009 - Competition
