While his wife and child are out of town one weekend, Alex seduces Dan as the two have an affair at her apartment. The next day, Dan is bombarded by phone calls from Alex wanting to get together with him again. Dan explains to her that the weekend they spent together was a mistake and they cannot continue seeing each other ever again. Alex cannot take no for an answer and begins to stalk him, appearing at several business meetings, and following him around town. Determined to be with Dan, Alex informs him that she is pregnant and he must take responsibility for the child.
