Privlačni odvetnik Brooks Caldwell ima vse, kar mu srce poželi. Toda za svoje lagodno življenje se lahko zahvali svoji lepi ženi Amandi, ki je podedovala svoje bogastvo. A namesto, da bi užival v svojem zakonu, Brooks nenehno skače čez plot in ponižuje svojo ženo. Ko Amanda odkrije njegovo prevaro, začne kovati izpiljen načrt, da bi se maščevala svojemu možu in ga kaznovala.
Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks' philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral.
