Early on, Israeli adult film star, Jonathan Agassi credited his on screen persona with saving his life; now, he credits this documentary with the same.

Offering explicit access to Jonathan’s life, from photoshoots and live sex shows to escorting sessions, it’s often the unique bond with his supportive mum and their time spent together that’s the most fascinating to watch.

After a childhood of being bullied for being too feminine, the film charts his rapid rise to fame and the pressures a career in adult entertainment brings, and his turn to drugs as a means to cope. As those stresses build and he finally attempts to confront his buried traumas, it becomes a personal story of addiction and survival.

Filmed over eight years, Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life offers an unfiltered and at times confronting look behind the curtain at a man audiences may think they know, but few have seen this naked and raw.
