Trapped inside a mountain cabin by a rainstorm, two men wait for their wives to return from a shopping trip in the town. Vaughan seizes the opportunity to make a startling confession to his buddy, Clay. He's got the hots for Clay's feet. He insists he's "straight from the ankle up," and promises absolute secrecy, but will the cash-strapped Clay allow his feet to be "bought?"
