    • Synopsis
    • A small American town. John and Alice are in their 20s, married, very much in love, and broke. In high school, gorgeous Alice was voted “most likely to succeed” but now she’s just trying to make ends meet while her friends are enjoying the good life. Her husband John, neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But after they get into an accident and end up at a roadside antique shop, Alice is spontaneously drawn to and shoplifts a brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot. It has the power to produce cash, but only when someone feels pain… Thrilled by this extraordinary source of free money, John and Alice start to figure out ways to hurt themselves, each other and eventually others. But as the pain, both physical and emotional, escalates, John and Alice begin to realize they are on a slippery slope…
