Overview

A respected professor moonlighting as a collegiate pimp finds his entire world shaken after a female student turns up dead, and a moralistic detective attempts to expose his hedonistic lifestyle. Noah Melville (Malcolm McDowell) teaches classical literature at a liberal arts college. An upstanding family man who's admired by his colleagues and beloved by his students, Noah runs a clandestine prostitution ring that helps his pretty female students keep up on their steadily-rising tuition payments. But when one suspect, slimy millionaire Cameron Morris (Timothy Bottoms) is cleared, Noah's whole world starts to crumble at the hands of crusading cop Patrick Kelly (Angus MacFadyen), recently demoted to a desk job due to his heavy-handed policing style. His criminal enterprise exposed before the entire community, Noah becomes a fugitive from justice, and enters into a treacherous game of cat and mouse with the righteous detective. Elizabeth Rodriguez and Dee Wallace also star.
