Annalee (Stef Dawson) is an academic ghostwriter. A freelance cheat working in

Annalee and Sigurd become lovers. But things turn sour: “It's been all Simpsons and dirty sex.” She can't end the romantic relationship without ending the business one. Secrets start to spill. Then she learns Sigurd has been recording their meetings!
When he refuses to explain, Annalee rats him out to Professor Kane (Richard Kind). Instead of the swift justice she envisioned, however, Kane has his own idea of what should happen next. Call it extortion, call it blackmail. Whatever you call it, the ugliness is just beginning...
