Michael (Hill Harper), a handsome photographer, pays the bills by working as a security guard. Frustrated with a life he can't control, Michael finds himself with a porn habit that takes on a riotous life of its own. Complications develop when he falls for Jasmine (Marlyne Afflack), a market research professional who has adopted celibacy as a way of life. When Jamine falls for Michael, she is dismayed to learn he can't "perform" without watching porn.
Realizing he has fallen in love with Jasmine, Michael reaches deep inside to both prove his love and to beat his obsession. Ultimately, both Jasmine and Michael find that unless they are together, they can't "eat the bones" -- sucking the marrow out of life in order to enjoy all that living has to offer.
