Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California–based journalist and poet Mark O’Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man (John Hawkes, Winter's Bone) who spends most of his time in an iron lung. He is determined - at age 38 -, no matter his physical hindrances, to lose his virginity. With the help of a sex surrogate therapist (Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets) and the guidance of his priest (William H. Macy, Fargo), he sets out to make his dream a reality.
