Moira is married to an abusive husband, who is having an affair with his secretary. On top of it she is troubled by recurrent dreams of running into a mysterious man waiting for her, and they always end up making love. Moira visits an astrologer to interpret her dreams, and is always brought a shy close to her dream lover, but never realizing it. Meanwhile, the man - whose name is Richard - has been having similar dreams. One day, she sees the same house she has been seeing in her dreams, where Richard happens to be working as a renovator. They both become captivated with each other, go back to Richard's place, and have an affair. They realize that they are meant for each other. But they also know that if Moira's husband gets a whiff of their relationship he won't stand it and make life hell for both of them, so he must be gotten out of their way somehow.

Another Lame Shannon Tweed Effort though not her worst.
12 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are a romantic then this film may have something for you. As Shannon Tweed plays a woman married to Joe Cortese a man so loathsome you can understand Shannon's infidelity. Her husband has affairs with his secretary and other women and treats Shannon like dirt. Shannon has dreams every night about a mystery lover, who turns out to be real and whats more he dreams of being with her also. When her husband begins to suspect that She is having an affair he has her followed. I think you can probably guess the rest but I won't spoil it for you if you can't. To be honest though I would be surprised if you made it to the end of this Shannon Tweed offering. The best thing in it is the cameo by Rochelle Swanson who is a Seriously Stacked Brunette, very beautiful (reminds me a bit of the actress who played Wonder Woman, if they made a remake Rochelle would be ideal). I think Shannon Tweed is quite attractive but to be honest there are far more attractive actresses out there, even among the erotic B movies Shannon Whirry & Lisa Boyle are much more attractive. The acting in this movie is quite bad although it is reasonable light entertainment for hopeless romantics. Personally though I didn't think much of this even among Shannon Tweed films I thought Forbidden Sins, Body Chemistry 4, Indecent Behavior 1&2 & A Woman Scorned were all better, this was however better than the incredibly bad "Singapore Sling"
