LOS ANGELES – Wicked Pictures has released the Kaylani Lei showcase Rise, from AVN award-winning director David Stanley. The director previously worked with Lei on Candelabra and Double Exposure.
A hauntingly erotic meditation on the afterlife, Rise finds Kaylani entering a new dimension as an actress and erotic performer with her portrayal of Melissa, a supernatural guide who meets recently deceased souls on their journey between this world and the next.
Her focus in Rise is Andy (Randy Spears), a gentleman who experiences an untimely death, only to have highlights of his time on Earth played back to him in the form of an actor's "highlight reel" after his demise. As his guide, Melissa narrates the events of his life in an effort to help him see the error of his ways. Her monologue soon reveals that whether it was due to his personal insecurities, his work ethic, or the repercussions of a broken heart, Andy never succeeded in finding true love during his short, tumultuous life.
The revelations of the highlight reel, coupled with Melissa's observations, soon raise the issue of second chances. Through Melissa's guidance, Andy ponders the possibility of finally rising above the shortcomings that held him back in his mortal life.
In addition to Lei and Spears, Rise also features Brad Armstrong, Brooke Banner, Chris Cannon, Evan Stone, Hollie Stevens, Kendall Brooks, Roxy DeVille, and Voodoo.Rise is in stores now. To learn more, WickedPictures.com.
