Lies seduce... secrets destroy... only the truth can set them free.
A beatiful young woman bursts into the apartment of Adam Ellis (Craig Sheffer - A River Runs Through It, Bliss), an American writer living in Budapest. She says her name is Marta and, on the verge of hysteria, claims to be running from a madman who for three years has held her prisoner in his house. Ellis wants to call the police, but Marta insists he would be wasting his time - her captor has friends in high places.
Seduced by the sensuous stranger, Ellis agrees to help, little realizing he is being drawn into a world where nothing is what it seems and no one can be trusted.
