Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Tamara Hernandez made her feature directorial debut with this role-reversal drama depicting a man on the receiving end of an abusive relationship. Cruel novelist Gloria (Honey Lauren) likes rough sex, and she finds fearful Billy (Steven Nelson), a female impersonator wannabe, in a grungy nightclub. After Gloria takes him home and rapes him, Billy falls in love with her. Her attractive cousin Lydia (Jeri Lynn Ryan) visits, and Gloria gets upset to find that her pet pig has been converted into an evening meal by Lydia. Worse, Gloria begins to suspect Billy has taken a fancy to Lydia. Shown at Austin's 1998 South By Southwest Filmfest.
