Bored with the big-city life, NYC model Savannah (Mindy Clarke) heads back home to the South where she reunites with her grandmother (who has feelings of guilt about Savannah's mother's death). Savannah also meets Jake, a hot-headed, handsome sculptor. An erotic relationship ensues, with Savannah's New York boyfriend also showing up to get her back. Not really a sequel, but both films have sex as the theme–this one having, perhaps, more.
