Nancy Stokes, a retired teacher and widow, yearns for an adventure, a connection and sex.
Her husband Robert provided Nancy with a house, a family and – on the face of it – a good life. But good sex wasn't on the menu. When Robert dies, Nancy comes up with a plan. She goes in search of adventure and the satisfaction she has been missing all these years. And she finds that adventure in the form of a sex worker named Leo Grande. They meet in an anonymous hotel room. Leo looks just like in his picture in real life, but Nancy hadn't counted on good sex and a good conversation. Leo has an opinion about everything and although he doesn't always tell the truth, Nancy likes him. And he likes her. Her sexual self-confidence grows and Nancy begins to relax. During the secret agreements, the power dynamics shift and the secure constructed facades slowly crumble.
