Plot: Another offbeat film from director Atom Egoyan that explores the theme of voyeurism.
Noah Render is an insurance company adjuster who routinely cheats on his wife and takes advantage of his vulnerable female clients, whose homes have been destroyed by fires. His wife, Hera, works as a film censor but -- unknown to her bosses -- she videotapes scenes from the pornographic films she watches to give to her mixed-up sister, Sete.
Into their lives step Bubba and Mimi, a wealthy couple who enjoy playing sex games. Bubba cons Noah and Hera into letting them use their house by pretending to be a location scout who wants to shoot a movie in the Renders's home.
When Bubba and Mimi move in, Noah and Hera take up temporary residence in a seedy motel and, before long, find their troubled marriage crumbling.
