Dramatis Personae Simone (f), a young woman; Doug (m), a much older man.

Synopsis “Simone, in reading through the personal ads, find one she likes: "Generous MWM, 64, seeks attractive F, 21-30, for discreet relationship." She secretly responds by telephone. She meets the ad’s owner, Doug, a much older man who is cheating on his wife. Why? He doesn’t say completely. He has had trouble with sex, he says. Simone coaxes him into opening up about his children and his grandchildren. A playful fight suddenly turns into lovemaking, however. Simone leaves shaken but intrigued. Simone and Doug continue seeing each other, revealing too many secrets and hurting those people close to them whom they least want to hurt.”
