Irene, a thirty-something housewife with a successfull husband and a young son, has her life thrown in a spin when she becomes attracted to Billy, a member of a landscape crew outside her house. When Irene’s husband and son leave for a weekend fishing trip, Irene wanting to see Billy, gets locked in the back of his trailer and ends up at remote Lake Consequence with Billy and his girlfriend Grace where they take Irene on a trip into the nearby town to a Chinese New Year Festival, and through a series of adventures they bring out the repressed sexual needs Irene has been holding inside for a long time.
This erotic cable-TV (Showtime) drama (by the soft-core duo of director Rafael Eisenman and writer/producer Zalman King) starred Joan Severance as Irene, a 30-something suburban housewife who became lustfully attracted to studly landscaper and tree-trimmer Billy (Billy Zane).
She was abducted (when she was accidentally locked in his camper-trailer) and joined him and his blonde bi-sexual, exhibitionist, extremely-fit girlfriend Grace (May Karasun or Hollie L. Hummel) for the weekend. They took a trip to the remote Lake Consequence where Grace enjoyed skinny-dipping and clothes-free freedom.
The film received a lot of attention for its video-cover – referencing a menage a trois sequence between the threesome in a steam-filled Chinese massage/bathhouse, including some intimate lesbian kissing.
As in many of these late-night cable tales, the repressed sexuality of Irene was released and discovered through her living out her sexual fantasies and abandonment to Billy.
