Worldly, sardonic art instructor Otto Guest enthralls 19-year-old Simone. When he invites her to Mexico, she agrees with no thought of the consequences. But she soon finds herself in an unfamiliar world of heat and grit and uncertain of her presence in Otto's life. What begins as a young woman's infatuation rapidly escalates into a piercing study of power, obsession, and the difference between art and reality.
