From Berlin to San Francisco, from Taipei to Champs-Elysees, Stephen Elliot's directorial debut "About Cherry" has been traveling the globe this year and now it's headed to a theater near you. While some folks have already caught up with movie on VOD, for those still looking to take in the film on the big screen, it opens in limited release this weekend and this new red band trailer will certain pique the interest and raise the eyebrows of those looking for something a little saucy.

Featuring a cast that includes James Franco, Heather Graham, Dev Patel, Lili Taylor and Ashley Hinshaw in the lead, the story follows a young woman who goes from selling nude photos to starring in porno films, and tracks the repercussions it has on her and those around her. Adding a bit of authenticity to the proceedings is porn star Lorelei Lee who co-wrote the screenplay, and also has a cameo in the picture.

"About Cherry" opens on Friday, September 21st. Check the official synopsis and red band trailer below:

Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw) is an 18-year-old on the verge of finishing high school, rushing to escape her broken family life. After reluctantly taking nude photos at her boyfriend's (Jonny Weston) behest, she takes the cash to skip town with her best friend (Dev Patel). Angelina gets a job cocktailing in a San Francisco strip club where she meets Frances (James Franco), an affluent lawyer who introduces her to a high-class world beyond her wildest dreams. At the same time, Angelina begins exploring San Francisco's porn industry, using the moniker Cherry, under the wing of a former performer turned adult film director (Heather Graham).
