In the middle of a possibly fatal car crash,  contemplates the two women in his life, a sexless marriage to Sharon Stone and a loveless affair with . While his car spins out of control against the steely gray Vancouver landscape, he feels forced to decide which woman to stay with. Davidovich is sexy and spontaneous as his fun lover, while Stone proves quite amply that she can do a good Grace Kelly as the frigid wife.
