SAMANTHA MARLOWE, actress/dog-walker, is struggling to make rent. Opportunity knocks in the form of a handsome doctor, EDWARD PIERCE, who needs care for his aunt’s Maltese, Humphrey. But Edward isn’t who he claims to be – as Sam finds out when she gets trailed by cronies of THE MISTRESS, a sexy and scary dominatrix looking for Humphrey. Sam’s business partner gets shot, her home gets broken into, and she falls in love with a sweet little Maltese whose life is in danger. Sam has to solve the mystery of who wants to hurt this little Maltese and why, all the while making it to her commercial callback, giving the GOTH KIDS and a scary GOTH MAN the slip, and making her starring performance in the under-attended but critically acclaimed play – The Dark and Bloody Love Bath. While Sam and Humphrey are both pawns in a game of petty revenge, Sam ultimately returns Humphrey safe to his owner, realizing that real love is a dog’s love.
