Cat (Kenna James) sits in a dark car parked on the side of the road, watching the quiet sidewalk. She's patiently waiting for someone, and that someone is Allison (Cherie DeVille).Allison appears, dressed in faux fur and high heels with her lips painted red-light district red. She climbs into the back of Cat's car, counting a wad of cash before slipping it into her purse. Cat is silent and the tension between them is as thick as smoke as Allison insists that Cat really doesn't need to drive her around everywhere. Cat calmly responds that she's just keeping her safe, then drives to the next location.Although Cat has to sit idly by as Allison beds strange men, her mind is filled with memories of THEM wrapped sensually in each other's embrace. She can still taste Allison's pussy on her lips and feel the weight of Allison's breasts in her hands. Cat's bedroom wall is plastered with photos of Allison in seductive poses after their nights of passion. Most of them are with Allison on her hands and knees, her body glistening in the aftermath of their sex. She is infatuated with Allison, wishing she could do more to help get Allison out of this rough patch in her life. Sometimes it seems like Allison doesn't WANT help, though, but Cat's loyalty -- perhaps obsession -- is unwavering.As Allison climbs into the car again after her second John of the night, she hands Cat a piece of paper relaying an address. Cat's calm, almost indifferent exterior shatters as she protests against the next location, which is in the warehouse district. Nothing good ever happens there. Cat desperately offers help once again to get Allison away from this lifestyle, but Allison mocks her. 'What are you going to do? Take more pictures of me?' The fantasy of them being passionately in love is quickly unravelling, showing the true nature of their twisted relationship.Defeated but still not wanting to let go of Allison, Cat reluctantly drives her to the warehouse. A man in a suit is standing outside of large warehouse doors filled with graffiti. Allison climbs out of the car, not giving Cat a second glance, as she takes the man's hand and slips inside the building.Cat waits as patiently as she always does, although she's near her tipping point. Everything is falling apart and Allison's slipping through her fingertips. Everything she hoped for really is nothing more than a fantasy.When Allison returns a short while later, sobbing against the backseat and begging for Cat to just DRIVE, Cat finally snaps. She climbs out of the car and opens the trunk, her eyes falling upon the object that will finally put an end to everything.After all, she's just keeping Allison safe.
