Featuring breakout performances by real-life couple Madeline Blue and Gee Richards, “Gone” relates the story of Rebecca and Todd Adams, a couple deeply in love, but destined for the saddest of partings. Adult reviewer Rich Moreland described "Gone" as "perhaps the most significant porn film this reviewer has ever seen" and it was nominated 2016 XBIZ Couples-Themed Release of the Year.

“I’m extremely excited to have ‘Gone’ screened at CineKink, a film festival I consider to be a true kindred spirit to Sssh.com, as we both encourage positive and affirming depictions of sexuality in erotica,” Rowntree said. “I’m especially pleased to have the opportunity for the CineKink audience to experience the incredible performances offered by Madeline and Gee, who really poured their heart and souls into ‘Gone,’ making it possible for me to realize my vision for the film.”
In “Gone,” the viewer experiences the couple’s story through Rebecca’s eyes, relayed as a series of flashes depicting private moments past she spent with Todd, a man with whom she’s clearly deeply in love — and whose mysterious absence provides the tension and melancholy underpinning the story.
“‘Gone’ is far more than a porn movie; it’s a bittersweet love story, which provokes thought every bit as much as it entices, taking the viewer on a stirring journey of the sort rarely experienced in an adult film,” Rowntree explained.
