Jouir De La Vie

Dustin, a young painter living in the Midwest begins suffering from a bizarre ailment: he dies every time he has sex. He seeks advice from his former professor who is convinced that Dustin must somehow purify his soul. He sets off for France in hopes doing this, but becomes increasingly suspicious that everything somehow relates to his art. Confused about how to proceed in life, he returns to the United States and to painting. However, when he begins to fall in love with a caring dance instructor, he becomes determined to solve his physical, spiritual and artistic crises before his death becomes permanent.
