A pair of lovers (LEE TERGESEN and ENID GRAHAM) travel from town to town, taking on different identities in each new place. Driven by an insatiable appetite for change and with no regard for consequences, they manipulate, toy with, and forever alter the lives of the strangers they meet. However, with each performance, their deceitful game spirals ever more out of control. One lie leads to another and, in the end, escape becomes impossible.
