Episode 1: William Rackham is a failure as a writer, deeply in debt, and husband to an increasingly unstable wife. When his father cuts off his allowance, William seeks solace with a prostitute, Sugar, and discovers that she's as skilled at conversation as she is at sex. For her own part, Sugar sees William as a way out of Mrs. Castaway's brothel.
