Poet and journalist Mark O'Brien was paralysed from the neck down by childhood polio and requires an iron lung to breathe. No-nonsense nurse Vera cares for him, wheeling Mark around California with a breathing tube. When he is asked to pen a feature on Sex And The Disabled, Mark is introduced to married sex surrogate Cheryl, who slowly breaks down his defences with body awareness exercises before they attempt intercourse.
