A young man from the Midwest seeks to emulate his parents' career choices by joining the porn industry.

Bucky Larson, an aimless young man working a dead-end job as a grocery bagger in the Midwest, discovers in a moment of bizarre serendipity one day that his closed-minded parents each maintained pasts as adult film stars. Inspired to follow in their footsteps, Bucky sets his sights on the bright lights of Hollywood, embarking on a lowbrow comedic journey to become a porn star and carry his family's torch onward.
