On a stormy night in NYC, a 19-year-old Manya finds herself in a swanky Manhattan apartment with her uncle and his best friend, the ever sophisticated and dangerously charming Alan. As the wine and conversation continues to flow a night of secrets and seduction becomes a devastating loss of innocence for young Manya. One year later she invites these two men to her apartment for an exquisite meal and the chance to reclaim her loss. This fast-paced drama is about the humanity sacrificed in the desire for control. Revenge is a dish best served with manicotti and wine.
