Silk (Mekhi Phifer)is an escaped convict looking to get some fast cash to get out of the country. Howard (Mel Jackson) is a stressed-out, wanna be writer who recently came into some insurance money after his wife's mother died. Debbie (Mari Morrow) is Howard's supportive wife that he overtly neglects.
During a writing session with Howard and his partners, Silk is invited into Howard and Debbie's home to use the phone because he's having car trouble. While there, Silk helps the frustrated writers with a problem with their script, then ends up befriending them.
Debbie and her best friend Tammy (Malinda Williams), stop at the house before going shopping and are attracted to Silk. Being neglected by her husband, Debbie, vulnerable and in dire need of attention, allows Silk to seduce her mind and eventually, her body.
When Silk's identity is revealed, he demands Debbie leave the country with him and threatens to kill anybody who stands in his way.
