Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Anna, a fortyish librarian who is recently divorced, goes on a date with Martin, a middle-aged perpetual bachelor. After a little sexual groping, she is ready to call it quits. Instead, he rapes her. As she recovers from her shock over the incident, she contemplates what would constitute a similarly invasive humiliation for a man, asking herself the question, "can a man be raped [by a woman]?" Donning a good disguise, she begins to stalk Martin, causing him considerable discomfiture. She even causes him to lose a bowling tournament. After enough of this, she abducts him at gunpoint just before a party he is giving, takes him back to his apartment, and ties him in a humiliating posture on his bed, leaving his front door unlocked when she departs. This unusual drama is based on a novel by Marta Tikkanen.
