A troubled young secretary embarks on a tortured romantic relationship with her employer.

Lee Holloway, an attractive young woman as gifted as she is fractured, returns to her hometown after a spell in a mental hospital with a view to setting herself straight and putting her life back on the right track. Lee's search for a job lands her at the secretary's desk for her demanding alpha-male lawyer Mr. Grey; a relationship borne out of her infatuation with his older age and position of power is formed, ultimately taking a turn towards sadomasochism as Lee and her boss sink deeper and deeper into their ever-kinky psyches.
