SCENE OPENS on Amanda (Athena Faris). She is in the backseat of a car. We don’t see what she’s looking at, but wherever she is, it is new to her, because she seems excitedly out the window at her surroundings, even mouthing an occasional ‘wow.’
Soon, the car pulls to a stop.
Amanda gets out of the car with her luggage but gets into a confrontation with the driver. She does not speak the language and has trouble communicating with him.
A local man, Josef (Steve Holmes), happens by and helps Amanda communicate with the cabbie.
Amanda realizes that Josef is her host at the place she has rented for the week, but Josef claims there was a mix-up, and he never received her booking. Since she has nowhere else to turn, he offers to let her stay there even though he’ll be there.
CUT TO TITLE
It’s a few days later. Amanda is getting out of the shower. She reaches for a towel, but there are none on the rack. She looks confused, saying aloud to herself that she SWORE there was a towel hanging up there when she got in.
She sighs and holding herself as she shivers, she steps to the door and opens it a crack, calling to Josef, asking if he has a towel for her. He arrives a moment later, holding a towel. He passes it to Amanda through the crack as she hides her naked body behind the door. Josef smiles at her, saying that there’s no need to be embarrassed – in his country, they are taught not to be ashamed of their bodies.
Finally, he leaves. Amanda lets out a relieved breath, rattled by the encounter.
The next day, Josef offers to show Amanda around the city but, wary of him now, she declines.
Later that night, Amanda returns from sightseeing. When she and Josef get into an argument, he threatens to kick her out unless she fucks him. With nowhere else to go, she agrees.
Amanda’s farther from home than she EVER imagined she would be…
