Leila Murray (Parker) is selling her body to the dull-eyed men that pass through the motel where she works as a receptionist. Secretly, she is saving to buy something that she sees shimmering just beyond the horizon -- something she desperately needs but dreads being given.

One October night she meets Gary Jensen (Rennie), a dangerous drifter who Leila finds both brutal and seductive. Feeding her growing desire to break and be broken, Gary compels Leila to dive deeper into her own unrealized darkness, uncertain whether she will survive Suspicious River, or if she even wants to.

Based on the novel of the same name by Laura Kasischke.
