Rabbi Zander Lustig has returned to San Francisco in the hopes of getting back the apartment where he and his recently deceased wife fell in love many years ago. However the apartment is now occupied by Jules Epstein, a British pornographer whose heyday has long passed.
Jules used to make erotic feature films in the 1980s and he just didn’t change with the times. He’s a loner and only has a couple of loyal friends. Zander invites him into his life and the two of them decide to join forces and try to raise enough money so Jules can go back to London, and Zander can take over the apartment that means so much to him.
They come up with what they regard as a revolutionary idea, a clergy approved porn site.
As they work on the site a strange and wonderful friendship develops between them. Jules pulls together what small resources he has and gathers a very young crew to shoot ‘Your Good Friend.’ It is Jules’ attempt to document what he regards as a ‘love renaissance.’ In the vein of The Odd Couple and The Producers this mockumentary is both touching and funny.
