The third and last film in a trilogy of features produced jointly by the Playboy publishing and cable television empire and Paramount Pictures, this erotic thriller was directed by Oley Sassone, whose previous film, The Fantastic Four (1994) was permanently shelved. Charles Grant stars as David Burgess, a corporate executive experiencing marital troubles with his wife Sara (Tawny Kitaen). Seeing her colleague's problem as her ticket to a brighter future, David's coworker Karen Stone (Shannon Whirry) engineers a sexual encounter between Sara and company CEO Gil Braman (George Hamilton) that is photographed by a private eye (Harry Dean Stanton). Predictably, David sees the photos and has a career-destroying clash with Gil, putting Karen in line for promotion. Realizing what has happened, David and Sara reconcile and set about destroying Karen and Gil while saving the company from a destructive pending merger.
