"She Helped Her Husband Destroy His Brother By The Most Immoral Act Imaginable"

"She Kept It All In The Family!"


Robert Strong (John Savage), a singer-songwriter who has been traveling the country, makes a mistake when he goes to visit his brother, Edward (Will MacMillan), and gets involved with his bored sister-in-law, Joanna (Anne Saxon).

Robert and his girlfriend, Deborah Holt (Meridith Baer), try to help his brother and sister-in-law get away from working as a drug mule.

It may or may not be a mistake, which they will not live to regret.[3]
