The movie isn't the usual sexy film we used to know since the lead stars in the movie excel not only in terms of sexiness or daring scenes, but also in terms of acting! Acting wise, both of them were superb!    

"The Escort Wife" tells the story of a housewife Patricia played by Janelle and her doctor husband Roy portrayed by Raymond. Because of her condition after miscarriage, Patricia was advised to stay home for months. She and her doctor husband rarely have sex. She got bored at home until she discovered something through watching from her neighbor's window!   

Patricia's neighbor is Chrissy played by Ava. Chrissy has multiple intimate encounters with different men. Until one day, Patricia decided to take Chrissy's place as form of revenge for her husband!
