SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A Utah-based film company will try to maintain its squeaky-clean image by offering compensation to customers who bought the "Sons of Provo" DVD but found "Adored: Diary of a Porn Star" inside the case.

Two families reported the problem after purchasing DVDs at Deseret Book stores, which are owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

HaleStorm Entertainment is offering $100 to anyone who mistakenly ended up with the "Adored" DVD instead of "Sons of Provo."

HaleStorm also plans to donate an additional $100 per DVD to CP80, an anti-pornography initiative.

"We are committed to producing family friendly entertainment and are devastated that some of the 'Sons of Provo' DVDs out there contain illicit material," Dave Hunter, HaleStorm's president and CEO, said in a statement.

The movies got mixed up at a Los Angeles firm that replicates both films for mass distribution.

"Sons of Provo" is a PG-rated film about the ups and downs of a Mormon boy band. "Adored" is an unrated independent film about a gay porn star's attempt to reconnect with his family.

Based in Orem, HaleStorm produces movies with conservative, modest Mormon-values themes.
