Maddie is a charming, attractive, eccentric actress with a quirky sense of humor. Not very successful, she has settled for playing housewives dancing around a toilet in bathroom cleaner commercials. After years of failure in her personal life, Maddie had given up on finding love. Then she met Richard. Richard is handsome, intelligent and attentive. He listens to her every word and tends to her every need. After four months, Maddie has finally found “Mr. Right”. So, what’s wrong with “Mr. Right”? Unexpected answers await as they take the ride of their life in Bruce Graham's shocking suspense-comedy Desperate Affection.
