Synopsis: Thomas, a beleaguered playwright/director is desperate to find an actress to play Vanda, the female lead in his adaptation of the classic sadomasochistic tale "Venus in Furs." Into his empty audition room walks a vulgar and equally desperate actress-—oddly enough, named Vanda. Though utterly wrong for the sophisticated part, Vanda exhibits a strange command of the material, piquing Thomas's interest with her seductive talents and secretive manner. As the two work through the script, they blur the line between play and reality, entering into an increasingly serious game of submission and domination that only one of them can win.  

The New York Times called it "....ninety minutes of good, kinky fun"
