The support group for sex addicts meets every Monday in the little seaside town of Pescadero, California. But where is Dr. Jurgensen, the therapist who’s supposed to lead the group? And is Dr. Jurgensen’s earnest intern who's left to lead the group in over her head? When Matt shows up, any illusion of a “safe space” shatters and the group must confront difficult truths and unexpected points of connection in a comedy about addiction, identity, and sex. (w)holeness asks the question: “am I too damaged to be loved?”
