Late one night, from a roadside convenience store where she works, Alberta (Leelee Sobieski) escapes an abusive relationship by hiding on a bus and taking it wherever it is going. The destination turns out to be Vancouver, where Alberta only knows one person Celene (Tricia Helfer), a woman who used to babysit her when she was younger. Although Celene is not overjoyed to have Alberta unexpectedly drop in on her, she agrees to let her stay. She lands a job at a local supermarket, but it pays nowhere what Celene makes as a full-time dominatrix – three hundred dollars an hour. Thinking it could be a way she can make some fast cash, she selects a potential client only to find out he is being pursued by three very bad men who will stop at nothing to retrieve a large sum of their money they believe he has stolen. Alberta suddenly finds herself both in the middle and in the way.
