A successful escort describes in a series of confessions his tangled romantic relationships with his two roommates and an older, enigmatic client.
The story remains the same as the novel, about a man (Derek Magyar) who goes by only the letter "X" to maintain his anonymity and relationships between his two roommates (Stephens and Trent) - one of whom he's in love with - and an enigmatic older client (Patrick Bauchau) who challenges him to find his heart before he will consent to sex.
