After finishing a ridiculous case for an exploitative employer, a large and sturdy looking man walks into Joan’s office. Convinced his wife is cheating on him and fearful of paying alimony for the rest of his life should he divorce her without proof, he needs Joan to get the proof he needs to cut her clean away.
The case sounds simple enough, but it’ll mean spying on the woman in their suburban home, surrounded by white picket fences and nosy homemakers. Out of her element, she risks being discovered and her investigation into the woman’s possible infidelity failing.
Unexpectedly, an intimate friendship has blossomed between Joan and Sally Holland, the focus of a previous case (8mm Model). As this relationship grows towards romance, Joan is filled with heated longing and troubling uncertainty. After years of isolation and trauma, how will she handle the tender and sensual affections of another woman?
The conflict of emotions she feels in her life is exacerbated by the complications she finds in her case. Can she overcome her fear of intimacy while she discovers the hidden, illicit secrets of her client and his wife? Who will she betray? And why is her client so desperate for divorce?
