One man's loneliness leads a pair of strangers into a place of unexpected menace in this independent thriller. Eugene Prescott (Stuart G. Bennett) is by his own description a bit of a lone wolf, a man in his early thirties who has few friends and want more than anything to be loved. Eugene has never been at ease around women, and after unsatisfying experiences on a blind date and with a streetwalker, he's become all the more aware of his intense desire for companionship. One evening, Eugene happens to meet Heather (Megan Lee Ethridge) and Josh (Ryan Reyes), a young couple who have their own issues -- Josh is a heroin addict who supports his habit as a male prostitute, while Heather is a nude model who is unhappy with the direction her life has taken. Eugene invites Heather and Josh back to his house, and at first they think they've simply found a trick who is looking for some kinky fun, but before long Eugene proposes a scheme that could make them some fast money. Josh and Heather are willing to go along, but in time they discover how damaged -- and how dangerous -- Eugene really is. Eugene received its world premiere at the 2009 Palm Springs International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
