Dag (Ron Eldard) is a successful director of television commercials who shares his home with his girlfriend, Halley (Kyra Sedgwick). Dag, however, has a serious case of roving eye and is given to frequent flings with other women. Halley tries to turn a blind eye to Dag's infidelity, but when she discovers he had a one-night stand with Rebecca (Marley Shelton), a beautiful but troubled modern dancer who is dating Dag's close friend Peter (Patrick Breen), she decides things have gone too far. It worsens when she hears a message on her answering machine for Dag from another woman looking to meet up. Halley gives Dag his walking papers and she soon makes the acquaintance of Andre (Taye Diggs), a very handsome and well-mannered classical musician. Andre, however, is married to Colleen (Sarita Choudhury), a woman with exotic sexual tastes who meets up with Peter, now suddenly without a girlfriend, on an airline flight. Peter and Colleen have sex on the plane in the bathroom. Peter makes a cell phone call right before the plane lands, which interferes with the control tower which causes the plane to crash. The plane breaks in half and everyone in the first-class section lives, only landing a few feet from the front gate. Everyone in the tourist section is burned beyond all recognition. An ambulance runs over Colleen and kills her. Meanwhile, Peter's very angry confrontation with Dag attracts the attention of Paula (Marisa Tomei), a mysterious but very sexy woman who has taken a decidedly carnal interest in Peter. As he rejects her and mourns Rebecca, Paula plots to kill him next. Andre, Peter and Rebecca mourn their lovers. However, as Paula makes her way through Peter's daisy-chained circle of friends, events begin taking a strange turn as her new acquaintances begin to die in great numbers.
