Overview
Peter Gallagher, Academy Award™-nominee Elisabeth Shue and Joe Don Baker set the stage for danger in this provocative thriller from the director of sex, lies and videotape. A charming drifter returns to his "home," where he makes a desperate and very dangerous deal in order to reclaim his ex-girlfriend (Allison Elliott). When passion ignites into obsession, a treacherous game of "who can you trust?" spins a deadly web of intrigue and murder – from which no one escapes unscathed.
