Status: Completed

Director(s): Asia Argento

Long synopsis : The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things, adapted from best-selling cult author J.T. Leroy's remarkable autobiographical novel, is the story of a childhood turned inside-out, seen through the eyes of a boy, Jeremiah, and his mother, Sarah, an impulsive, insatiable, utterly lost young woman who works as a truck-stop prostitute in the Southern states of America. We follow Jeremiah as he is bounced between his foster parents, his fundamentalist grandparents and a vagabond existence on the road with Sarah, passing through endless drug dens, shotgun shacks, fleapit motels and strip joints populated by low-lives, predators, junkies and criminals.
