Sexual Perversity in Chicago takes "funny and painful digs at the fantasies and distances of the contemporary sexual game" (The New York Times). It shows a couple of months in the lives of four young professionals in "sex-crazed" 1973 Chicago.

Does anyone really know what makes things works? In the end we see, once again, that the more things change the more they stay the same.
