Synopsis: A fancy young businessman named Reed leaves his wife & their infant at home one day, ostensibly off to a work trip. His real destination is to a hotel in town, where he’s preparing to enact a long-held fantasy of murdering a woman. He has ordered an escort, & as he waits for her to arrive he runs through his game plan. It seems he’s thought of everything, but he couldn’t have accounted for Jackie, the escort who arrives, & who seems to have some interesting fantasies of her own.
