Storyline

Rachel, a part-time call girl, consumed with fairy tales, is taken off the streets of Las Vegas by Navy, a high-class gigolo in search of a new way of life in Montana. Along the way, the couple is sidetracked when they decide to stop at the home Rachel ran away from six years ago. Navy nearly falls for Rachel's gorgeous and "virginal" step-sister, Lilli. Heartbroken, Rachel runs away just as Navy realizes she is the one for him. He dramatically rescues her from psychotic drifters. Written by Amanda Lowe <daro@meditnet.com>

What a triumph!
16 February 1999 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

This is a very beautiful bittersweet love story! What a great job with the filmography, and what an original story. I wasn't sure what to expect as performances out of two such "beautiful people" as Yasmine and Richard, but what they did was so sweet and real that by the end I loved them both! Can't wait to see more from Director/Writer Gregory C. Haynes, he is an inspiration.
