Shall I tuck you in?
Set a few decades back, and based on a true story. A 38 year old man is confined to an iron lung, after polio left him more-or-less paralysed from the neck down. He is eager to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapists and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his dream a reality, by hiring a sex surrogate. However he did not count on how his feelings would react to this married woman. Note the age restriction, this film is not for the prudish.
