Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people. Up until now Monique has always been able to give her clients exactly what they've wanted. Thomas has always been exactly what everyone else has expected. But tonight Thomas' curiosity is going to get the better of him while demanding of Monique the one thing she's reluctant to offer. Throughout the course of the evening the tension, emotional and sexual, builds as the two characters miss each other on the surface, whilst underneath it all, they connect in a way neither had expected or hoped for. In a society where true honesty is a rare commodity, Monique and Thomas take the audience on a funny, poignant and brutal journey of self-examination.
Honesty costs more.

You wanna have this real time here. Really get to know me. Meet someone. Say something special, something intimate. How even more intimate than sex? And then, one day I'm gonna walk by you in a shopping centre; and you'll be there with your pretty innocent girlfriend; and our eyes will meet and will just keep walking by because I'm a professional and that will be more than fine with you. You'd drop your eyes. You'd hold your girl's hand a little tighter. And you know why that's not okay with me...
