Storyline

Attempting suicide, sultry but down-on-her-luck swindler Liz is rescued by lonely tow truck driver Aiden. But instead of rushing her to the hospital, Liz's savior abducts her to his remote farmhouse, convinced that she is the wife who abandoned him years earlier. Cut off from civilization, kept prisoner and guarded day and night by vicious attack dogs, Liz realizes she must rely on her skills as a con artist to talk her way out of this hostage situation. In the satiric tradition of Buffalo '66, Misery, Black Snake Moan, and Secretary, comes this captivating black comedy about the ties that bind. Written by Dokument Films

Funny, Sexy, Engaging, Clever. I want more!
21 August 2008 | by asit-happensSee all my reviews

Surprising. Engaging. Clever. Funny. Sexy. Challenging. Not a Sundance kind of indie crowd pleaser with lashings of cheese and sentimentality, but it's definitely charming and memorable. A little scary at times but not ugly or violent and being a girl, it's nice to see strong, sexy, manipulative chick at the heart of the film. The other comments in this thread reveal enough of the plot and story so I'm not going to say anything about that but I must keep writing because IMDb says I need to write a 10 line review. How about this - Puppy has some inventive uses for a vacuum cleaner and a Polaroid camera, and then there is a bit with a candle that you'd probably only see in an emergency ward, and there are some dogs, 3 I think, but it doesn't go all that well for them. Why is Bernard Curry not a big star here, he is so sexy, especially when he is shaved, I could drown in his eyes, not to mention his butt which gets a good airing. But hormones aside, he and Nadia Townsend are awesome. They have a lot of sexual chemistry. So that's my ten lines. Go see it for something unique, funny and sexy.
