Starring Helen Hunt in her Oscar nominated role for Best Supporting Actress and Academy Award nominees John Hawkes and William H. Macy, THE SESSIONS is a triumphant true story about love, sex, desire...and making every breath count.

But now, at age 38, he faces his toughest challenge yet: losing his virginity. With the help of a beautiful therapist (Hunt), a sympathetic priest (Macy), and his own unbridled sense of optimism and humor, Mark embarks on an extraordinary personal journey to discover the wondrous pleasures that make life worth living.
