Brandon is a 30-something living in New York. Brandon has a well-paid job in the advertising industry. And Brandon has a problem: He is sex-addicted, spending his time with hookers, one-night stands and pornography. While his problems are growing worse, his eccentric sister Sissy, a troubled person herself, comes and moves into his flat. Her presence and her longing for emotional closeness turn Brandon’s life upside down.
Shame is a radical exposure, both bodily and mentally, a film about sex and the longing for intimacy in a superficial world.
