Storyline

This is the story of a young woman (who lives in Los Angeles) with a very boring job. At night however, she and a male partner cruise the bars as swingers. After a time, she begins to believe that a conspiracy exists and decides that she must become a born-again Christian. The movie presents an interesting view of how even the most unlikely person might become born-again. Written by Mark Logan <marklo@west.sun.com>

User Reviews

Don't let this one get away if you're a true movie fan
23 February 2000 | by cooper-29See all my reviews

One of the most intriguing movies I've ever seen and most underrated I might add. I'm not religious but this movie is mesmerizing from the performances to the script and poses a lot of interesting questions about life as well as religion. Why Mimi Rogers didn't become a Star after this, I don't know. Now she's reduced to movie to movies like Lost in Space and guest appearances on X-files with her costar of Rapture, David Duchovney. Check this out. You won't be sorry.
