Storyline

In Dallas, the thirty-one year old arrogant lawyer Gary Wheelan is a wolf, unfaithful husband and gambler. He works at a law firm and presently he is defending the scum Vernon Woods, who has embezzled a large amount from retired people, and Mr. Sloan, who wants to declare his mother senile to administrate her money. Gary wins one bet and when his bookie Doc pays the amount, he decides to buy a Jaguar betting again. Gary offends a telephone operator and later she returns to him telling that she is Shiva (the destroyer and transformer Delty from the Hinduism) and she will destroy his life. From the next day on, Shiva interferes in Gary's life that turns upside-down and he loses his wife, his car, his credit rating and his reputation. What will happen to Gary?

Exciting, comedic film, with a lesson for all.
27 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was pleasured to attend the Dallas Film Festival and saw this film. I did not know what to expect, having been a minor character in the cast. My wife and I completely enjoyed it. Jon Dichter did a great job in putting together a sensitive subject of infidelity and values, mixing it with comedy. It is fast paced and keeps the audience interested.
