Breaking and Entering


A wealthy landscape gardener with a cold marriage trails a youth who has been burglarising his office. There he meets a Bosnian refugee, and it's not long before he is looking for passion from this warm woman instead of his frigid wife. Naturally this leads to all sorts of complications for everyone concerned.
