A man and woman begin a complex affair over 72 hours in a Las Vegas penthouse, where the repercussions of actions uncover layers, and neither life will ever be the same again.

A rich man hires a prostitute- but this deceptively simple storyline asks us to consider much more than sex in Vegas. Set entirely in a hotel suite where everything is available via the concierge, the film explores power dynamics and all the pleasures that wealth provides. If you had the money, would you fly to Paris for a week? Writer/director Adam Mervis (screenwriter of 21 Bridges) looks at the bounds of capitalism, and the repercussions of actions by those in control, for those being controlled, and then asks us to consider what is justice. Sarah Rose Harper (The Dead Ones) and Mike Faiola (Awkard) make a spectacular duo in this sensuous film. – Kelly A. Harrison
