Abstract:

Sam and Angie, husband and wife, live in a privileged world; a world of cocktail parties, large river-front houses, and expensive cars. They have no children. Sam is a wealthy businessman and Angela is a lawyer, and their marriage seems a good one until Sam is betrayed by a trusted employee, and his import business begins to fade. Angela has a brief flirtation with Patrick, a young man charged and acquitted of trespassing - Patrick is all surface polish and gloss, with nothing underneath - but when she takes the case of Joey, a young offender accused of the murder and rape of another lawyer, she loses herself in her work, convinced Joey is innocent. Sam's feelings quickly accelerate into anxiety, suspicion and jealousy, blurring the line between paranoia and reality. Their love collapses into surveillance, and their sexual relationship becomes a shocking act of violence.
