From the outside, Emory’s home looks just like any other rural American property. However, inside it’s an ultra-kitsch sex fetish film set, with flying star ships, giant robots and exploding dildo machines that would make even Barbarella blush. A comics writer and mechanic, Emory’s imagination and construction skills combine to create an erotic fantasy wonderland. Single-handedly tackling every part of the design, build, shoot and edit, she certainly gets her kicks out of making these adult flicks, but it doesn’t always make a living. Emory is forced to consider downsizing, which will entail reducing her vast and wide-ranging hoard of collected items. The End of Wonderland is a playful yet probing portrait of an eccentric artist and self-proclaimed smut peddler.
