The series is about the life path of the creator of the legendary Playboy. It explores exciting details of his personal life and dizzying success in business, all of which he lived with pleasure. It cannot be said that his path was cloudless, as envious individuals tirelessly put spokes in his wheels, but he effortlessly moved forward, living his life despite the envy of others. Despite lacking a flamboyant appearance and breathtaking figure, Hefner took possession of hundreds of women thanks to his charisma. What man wouldn't experience difficulties in his place?

With $600 in his pocket and a loan, he created a magazine that turned him into the owner of a mega-empire. However, in the beginning, everything was not clear. Playboy was not just a publication where you could admire the female form. It was the first magazine in history to discuss issues of sex. Detractors called him a pornographer and a gossip, but this cannot be used in truth. Playboy paid homage to beauty and had frank conversations on topics that concern everyone but are often closed to general discussion due to the puritanical upbringing of most people.
