Out of Reach

Vietnam veteran Billy Ray Lancing, a former CSA agent who now works on a wildlife refuge in Northern Alaska, has been exchanging letters in a pen-pal relationship with Irina Morawska, a 13-year-old orphaned girl in Poland that he’s helping out financially. When the letters suddenly stop coming, Billy heads to Poland to figure out why — only to discover that the orphanage that Irena was staying in, which is financed by honest — and unsuspecting — good-intentioned Samaritans, is a cover for a human trafficking network. Run by a man named Faisal, the operation is worth billions — girls are sold and traded to the highest bidders from all over the world. Through Billy’s letters to Irina, Billy has taught Irina how to use secret codes, which she uses to keep Billy updated on where Faisal is taking her to. That’s how Billy stays on Faisal’s trail as Billy teams up with local cop Kasia Lato to rescue Irina and the other girls, and bring down Faisal’s human trafficking network.

Piano Player, The

How far is a man willing to go to be with the woman he wants? Erika is a veteran piano instructor at a famous music conservatory in Vienna. Erika is highly respected for her remarkable talent and strong discipline, but she’s also known to be a harsh taskmistress and does not suffer fools gladly; among her students, Erika’s class is considered a highly rewarding challenge, but difficult to weather. Erika seems to get her stern and unforgiving nature from her mother, with whom she still lives, and without a husband or a lover, Erika satisfies her strong but frequently perverse sexual appetites through extreme porn videos, voyeurism, and masturbatory practices that sometimes involve pain and self-mutilation. Erika discovers she has attracted the attentions of one of her students, Walter, a gifted and good-looking young man who does not seem at all put off by her icy personality. She refuses to acknowledge Walter’s romantic overtures, but when he rises to the defense of a fellow student after a recital, Erika is enraged, and Walter pursues her, finally following her as she storms off to the women’s room. Erika abruptly approaches Walter in a rough sexual fashion, but refuses to fully satisfy him until he is willing to allow her to control the relationship. When Walter becomes aware of just how much pain and humiliation is involved in Erika’s erotic bill of fare, he refuses to participate, but in time his attraction to her causes him to weaken, and he begins to accede to her sexual demands.
