Peoria Babylon, A Film about Sex, Art and Peoria, Illinois

About Peoria Babylon

Jon Ashe (David Drake, Philadelphia) needs more from life in Peoria— the 20 gay men in town are tacky and boring. Candy Dineen (Ann Cusack, A League of Their Own) is well-bred, blonde, and broke. Together they own two halves of a failing gallery. But their luck changes when a hunky art stud reveals his talent for art forgery and publicity stunts. As the three conspire, they imagine a most successful venture: an Art Massacre that brings them fame, wealth, success… and all the problems that follow.
