A woman in her fifties, the high priestess of intellectual film critics, is helped to her Brownstone apartment by a handsome young man who just saved her from a mugging. The young man is an actor and film maker whose work she loathes and whose latest picture she is scheduled to review. The electric atmosphere is fueled by his Casanova reputation and her desire. Will a favorable review be traded for a one night stand?
