Storyline

Mia DuBois (Calhoun) is a walking cliché--a successful therapist with an unsuccessful marriage. Her husband, Victor (St. John), is more interested in working on his laptop than on her. So she is very receptive to hearing about the wild sex life that her new client Tammy (Wilson) and Tammy's husband enjoyed, before he was murdered. Mia even accepts an invitation from Tammy to Pandora's Box, a no holds barred secret club of sex, drugs, and even more sex. She falls under the spell of a dark, handsome stranger named Hampton (White), a walking streak of sex. But is Hampton all he seems? Written by Anonymous

Given the opportunity to create a movie can lead to even better movies. I look forward to future movies from the writer and director of Pandora's Box. the commercial, website and movie were all top notch and has taken Black Cinema to a new level. A movie that caters to all your senses is rare, especially when it comes from top notch actors/actresses. Keep the kids at home and enjoy this with someone from the opposite sex...there will be much to talk about after it's over. I look forward to seeing it again soon.
