Karen works in her parents bar; she has done so for years and is perfectly capable of running it by herself. She has big plans for the bar; her parents’ vacation is her chance to put some of these plans into action. But, as with all good plans, there is always something to distract you.
A relatively normal evening erupts into violence and is the catalyst for a seemingly chance meeting with an older stranger. Jack is old enough to be her father and yet the connection Karen feels with him is undeniable. But as mysteriously as he arrives, he also disappears; leaving Karen obsessed with what could have been. Fortunately she doesn’t have to wait for long, as he returns to the bar and Karen seizes the opportunity to find out more about him. Instead, she tells him her innermost secrets, things that she has never told anyone else; she simply can’t resist the hold he has over her.
Jack takes her down the path that she has fantasized about for years, but when she stumbles across some new information she is left to question everything she has learned. Now she must decide, submit and find out if it really is the life for her; or carry on, never knowing what could have been.
