A respected professor moonlighting as a collegiate pimp finds his entire world shaken after a female student turns up dead, and a moralistic detective attempts to expose his hedonistic lifestyle. Noah Melville (Malcolm McDowell) teaches classical literature at a liberal arts college. An upstanding family man who’s admired by his colleagues and beloved by his students, Noah runs a clandestine prostitution ring that helps his pretty female students keep up on their steadily-rising tuition payments. But when a noted millionaire murders one of Noah’s girls, his whole world starts to crumble at the hands of crusading cop Patrick Kelly (Angus MacFadyen), recently demoted to a desk job due to his heavy-handed policing style. His criminal enterprise exposed before the entire community, Noah becomes a fugitive from justice, and enters into a treacherous game of cat and mouse with the righteous detective.
