When Margot and Daniel meet on a plane, they have an immediate connection; their chemistry is intense and they can't shake off the feeling that they've met before. This movies isn't your ten a penny love story though as Margot is happily married to Lou, a cookbook writer. However when it turns out that rickshaw driver Daniel lives on the same street as the happy couple and begins to regularly pop up in Margot's daily routine when back home, their intensity blossoms and throws the certainty of Margot and Lou's domestic life into question. Call it destiny, whimsy or coincidence; the two begin to lust for one another more and more after their aeronautical meeting and this love triangle becomes an extremely passionate affair.
Throughout the sweltering Toronto summer, awash with colour and luscious surroundings, Margot and Daniel steal whatever moments they can together, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. When Margot's best friend (and Lou's sister) falls off the wagon around the same time her newfound sexual intensity reaches its peak it brings her life into perspective and she has to chose whether to stick with what she knows or follow where her passion seems to be leading her.
