A perfect WORLD… A perfect LIFE… A perfect LIE…?
On the surface, happy-go-lucky banker Johnny has everything: a high-powered job, a smart San Francisco townhouse and a gorgeous blonde fiancée, Lisa. He even has the best buddy a guy could ask for in the shape of the young and handsome Mark. So far, so perfect.
But things are about to take a precipitously downward turn and Johnny will discover that he can’t trust even those nearest and dearest to him. With her husband-to-be out of the house one day, Lisa makes advances on Mark, leading the two on the path to a steamy love affair that will threaten to shatter the lives of all involved.
