In a sweaty and sticky hotel room, a Western man and a young woman meet for sex. Somewhere between the reality and the fantasy, the sex becomes talk and the talk becomes dangerous. Nothing is off limits in this battle of morality, economics, and desire. Governor General Award winner Erin Shields shines a light on the complexities of sex tourism and our preconceptions about love.
