The internet isn’t just for establishing personal relationships; it’s also for conducting business…and for the point where the two commingle. Natalie is desperate for extra cash when a friend encourages her to make a profile on a website connecting young women with sugar daddies. It’s supposed to be safe—but Natalie soon finds herself caught in a dangerous game with one of the rich men she’s met online.
