IMPOTENT is a darkly comic drama set in the glamorous world of a Market Harborough Genito-Urinary Medicine Department.
Five men from very different backgrounds at different stages of their life and different stages of treatment for impotence are seen individually undergoing treatment with Dr Zoë Lane, a woman who has to penetrate, interpret and reprogramme the misfiring, and frequently overwired brains of her patients.
Her patients are a mixture of men for whom sex is a reward, a curse, a threat, a justification and a punishment. After individual consultations with Dr Lane, the five patients are all then bought together in a group meditation session, which aims to teach them to live in the moment and ignore the erection defeating voices in their head. But when one patient decides to vent the anger his impotence has bred in him , the group descends into anarchy. The patients try to come to terms with their lives that have been mainly exercises in searching for validation, reassurance, but most of all….a hard-on.
