Jack, a sex addict who fantasizes about his wife all the time, is duped into a threesome with a young colleague of his and her fiancée. In order to keep his marriage together, Jack sacrifices everything he has to make it up to his love. He is out to prove to her that their love is powerful enough to keep them together, especially when it hurts.
JACK (lead) Male, mid-late 30’s, English speaker, Any Race
Not a particularly good or strong looking guy; mild introvert, quirky and energetic. His world revolves only around him and his wife Annie. In his mind, sex is a big part of his relationship with her. Annie finds out about his infidelity and leaves him. But it is his fight and desire to keep his marriage together that defines his value as a husband, and it is his sacrifice that portrays how selfless he is in the face of love. In terms of character, Caveh Zahedi in “I’m a Sex Addict” is comparable, especially with the quirkiness.
