About The Sessions
A drama about a disabled man who decides to lose his virginity at the age of 38. Mark (John Hawkes) has been living in an iron lung due to polio ever since he was a child. He can't survive without it for more than four hours, so his social life is a little lacking. Frustrated and saddened at never having experienced physical intimacy, he decides to hire sex surrogate Cheryl (Helen Hunt). And with the advice of his friendly priest (William H. Macy) he also attempts to get over his Catholic guilt about the situation. But Mark soon finds that it's not just sex that he needs to learn about as his sessions with the sympathetic and wise Cheryl open his mind to a new level of interaction.
