Sondra, looking for extra cash and a new place to live, has convinced him to use her as his model. Sondra quickly realizes that Patrick is not as interested in her amorous advances as he is in the lines and curves of her body but while he obsessively draws her, she slowly chips away at the carefully constructed walls Patrick is struggling to protect. Throughout, next-door neighbor Monica tries to salvage her marriage to Dragon, whose life is fading into a haze of drugs and fantasy, while the seductive, symbiotic twins, Cindy and Cheryl, help Sondra further insert herself into Patrick's life. By the time Sondra realizes she wants more from her relationship with Patrick, it's the twins who've become the object of his affection and Sondra's struggle to regain his attention leads to unintended consequences.
