A nameless man and woman are coming from a house party and decide to head to a spontaneous pool party. The woman asks the man to first take her somewhere private to primp before getting into her bikini and the man mysteriously chooses a desolate prop house. Once there, the two begin a torturous mind game. What begins as drunken banter, soon escalates into an intense sexual encounter.
Just as suddenly, the woman turns around and claims rape. She now threatens to blackmail the man with this claim, letting on that she knows all about him and his family. Seemingly trapped, the man then turns the tables on her and lets the woman know that she won’t leave the room alive. The plot continues to twist, constantly redefining what this strange encounter between the man and the woman is to become. As the story’s violence continues to unfold, a third character appears to let us know that nothing in this story is what it seems.
