The Banker meets the Young Woman one spring evening. He is a man of enormous power and wealth. That night she becomes his mistress. Together they enter a world of endless erotic desire – the desire to possess and to be possessed, to be forced past all limits. To submit and to dominate. Their games grow ever wilder, ever more dangerous. Day by day, night after night, they are consumed. One by one, all boundaries are destroyed. The Husband looks on passively. The Banker gives her a gun and teaches her to shoot. The Young Woman is a willing pupil. She provokes him into abuse and humiliation. Their hunger is insatiable. He promises her a million dollars – then rejects her – and the deadly bond between them is sealed.
