Legendary porn star Belladonna was arguably the biggest adult performer of the new millennium. Along with people like Evil Angel boss John Stagliano and fellow performers Nacho Vidal and Rocco Siffredi, she pioneered an aggressive, extreme, and highly sexualized—almost cannibalistic—type of porn that would would be the inspiration for stars like Joanna Angel, Dana DeArmond, and slews of others to shake the victim mentality attached to porn and instead wear their sexuality like a badge of honor.

Chris Nieratko's latest introspective look into the porn world follows Belladonna's trajectory from her humble Mormon upbringing to her first foray into smut, her initial breakdown on Diane Saywer, her rise to the most successful and recognizable adult star since Jenna Jameson, and ultimately, her retirement from the adult industry. As we watch Belladonna walk off into the sunset to settle into a life of domesticity with her daughter, we learn just what it was that made her so special and unique.
