In Tucson, Arizona, Alex Connor is a college teacher whose wife Cynthia is diagnosed with cancer. As her health deteriorates, he starts a short-lived affair with Canadian Sheila Hart, one of his art students. He soon regrets his actions and ends the affair immediately, but Sheila is not willing to accept that she is no longer his mistress. Alex's home life soon starts to look better, as Cynthia has gone into remission. Now, his only problem is Sheila, who has started her own revenge plan. Determined to win him back, she starts to terrorize him, even going as far as dating his son Rick to make him jealous.

Garth has expressed her experiences on the film during a 1996 interview: "I had a good time with it. It's a good story with no hidden messages. It's a thriller, a suspenser. Pure entertainment. [..] It's always fun to play the bad girl. It gets kind of boring to be nice, you know?"
Garth co-produced the film, which included that she took part in hiring the writers, directors and actors, "as well as the overall feel of the film. I like to be sure that they're going to be made into things that I want to be a part of. Because things can go easily awry, and you can easily end up with a typical movie-of-the-week formula."
