In 2000, Laura Albert publishes her debut novel Sarah under the name JT LeRoy and the book becomes a bestseller. With success comes publicity but Laura is determined to preserve her anonymity. The publication of a second book, a collection of short stories entitled The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things, fuels media interest. Laura invites her boyfriend's androgynous sister Savannah to pose as the elusive JT LeRoy in the public eye.
