After some prodding, Christian agrees to give a lead role in his next film to Ryan (Nolan Funk), the boyfriend of his assistant.

Christian is having an affair with Cynthia, a yoga instructor, but grows increasingly jealous of Ryan - with good reason. Ryan and Tara had a fling a year prior and now are reigniting it in secret. He hires a private eye to learn more about their affair.

The two of them continue to manipulate each other in a series of increasingly dangerous power struggles. Christian invites another couple into the bedroom for a four-way orgy, sensing Tara is no longer interested in these empty one-night stands.

They continue to play each other, but only one can ultimately win. Will Christian's rage get the better of him? And, if so, will Tara (or any of them) survive?
