Her character, choices, and decisions throughout the movie are influenced by the experiences she had as a kid growing up. At a young age, she was sexually abused by her teacher which in turn leaves her battling with some uncontrollable sexual urges throughout her life.
With her past still hunting her, she literally sleeps with every man who crosses her path. She ends up getting in bed with her employees, security guard, and even her brother -in-law. She finally meets Timothy, a billionaire philanthropist who adds some spice to the plot.
