Synopsis
Magnetic Julian Kaye, a handsome Hollywood male prostitute, makes a lucrative living as an escort to older--wealthy--women in Los Angeles. Normally disinterested in emotional entanglements, he begins a relationship with Michelle, the local senator's wife, and the both fall in love. In the interim, he is framed in a kinky murder case, and tracks down the pimp who's responsible for blaming him. Julian watches in horror as the pimp himself is killed, and then finds himself faced with prison unless the politician's wife provides him with an alibi.
