Meet the Pierces, a middle-aged mixed-race couple who've staked their ground in suburbia, with careers, SUV, dog and 2.1 children. Stir in a dash of fatigue and a pinch of cynicism, and you have a recipe for domestic disaster. Enter Liane, young, white, beautiful. Elton Pierce, an ad exec who has devoted his working life to the manipulation of desire, finds himself helpless in Liane's presence.
