Description: 'He was now in that state of fire that she loved. She wanted to be burnt.' - Anas Nin We open to Gracie (Marley Brinx), an innocent teen simply looking for her step-father's fishing gear so that she can spend a day out with friends. However, when she searches Tyler (Charles Dera)'s room, she finds a mysterious trunk that opens up a whole new world to her... She's mystified as her eyes and fingers trail over the variety of paddles and riding crops delicately laid across a red velvet pillow. She picks up a paddle, feeling the solid weight of it in her hand as she carefully spins it around. She's drawn to it, like a moth to a flame... until she's suddenly snapped out of it by Tyler's stern voice behind her. Instead of being afraid of Tyler, she sees a darker side to him that stirs a fire within she never knew existed. The way he describes his dark desires and past while lovingly handling his paddle collection has her hooked. This is a man who knows what he's doing and enjoys doing it, although he's denied himself such pleasure for so long. He vowed to put it all away to become a respected family man. He dedicated himself to his new wife and raising his step-daughter. Yet, while Tyler tries his hardest to be a good father, Gracie soon tempts him to be anything but.
