Fake Porno peeks behind a grimy curtain at the gritty street life of post-war Belgrade. It is brazen, confrontational and the six compelling performers are in your face - often literally.
Characters reveal their secrets: a pole dancer, a thief, a teen who discovered sex, a lovelorn transvestite, a lonely cabbie and a brassy celebrity designer. Fake Porno is alternately sexy, funny, bold or poignant.
