The electricity that riveted their glances to each other in their bareness provides fodder for an immediate connection. It continues expansively through their verbal interaction, laced with commentary on lifestyle, attraction, lust, passion and need. They soon marry. Their honeymoon is a nightmare for both. Each lacks a mentality that would allow them to totally bond to one another. Through their dialogue we learn that, despite being on their honeymoon, they each have succumbed to lustful temptation.

When their glances meet through the windows across the narrow street, they close the window curtains...
