Only a few weeks after her husband's mysterious death, Maureen returns from a cruise with handsome Brit Oliver Vance in tow. Her son Scott is mortified. He still can't believe that his father - a world-class athlete - actually drowned. When Maureen and Oliver announce wedding-plans, Scott's world begins to fall apart. Oliver's attractive daughter Kelly shares Scott's distrust of the impending marriage - and proposes a theory of her own: is it possible that Maureen and Oliver have known each other longer than just a few weeks; and if so, could they have possibly killed Scott's father? The two start to investigate - and soon fall in love. But while they are united by a horrible suspicion, the investigation soon reveals some secrets that keep them apart. Scott has to realize that he can truly trust no one - not Oliver, not Maureen and definitely not Kelly. Written by Karsten Kastelan

An Entertaining Thriller
11 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is full of twists and turns. A very steamy, erotic thriller. It is quite unique in that it shows both the parents and their children in a sexual manner. It is also quite unique in the fact that one is never certain who are part of the conspiracy to steal the the Dougherty Estate. It makes you wonder what you would do if you were in a similar situation, The pacing, the music nd the locations l combine to make this an entertaining film. Adam Garcia, another Australian actor destined to make it big. He is already a heart throb in the UK and from this film, you can see that he is on his way to becoming a major romantic lead in US studio films
