The Loss of Sexual Innocence 100.

The Loss of Sexual Innocence

Release Date: May 28, 1999
The Loss of Sexual Innocence is the story of Nic, told through the crucial, sometimes humorous and often heart-breaking episodes of his life. We catch glimpses of what makes Nic the man that he is, tracing incidents that happen to him as a five year old boy, as a twelve year old adolescent, as a 16 year old teenager, and as a fully grown man. Cross-cut with the tale of Nic is the classic parable of Adam and Eve, which serves as an allegory to the events of Nic's life and, the two tales intertwined, ultimately serves as a powerful summation of the loss of innocence of not just Nic, but of the humanity of our species.
