Sometimes, an entire life can change in one night.

This dark comedic thriller, based on the novel, stars Kaley Cuoco as Cassie Bowden, a New York-based, globe-trotting flight attendant with a devil-may-care attitude and a history of binge drinking, who relishes flying off at a moment's notice to her next great adventure.

But Cassie's glamorous world is thrown into a tailspin when she wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man - and no idea what happened.

Haunted by the bleak future she faces if she doesn't clear her name, Cassie scrambles to put together the pieces of a night in Bangkok gone terribly wrong, leading her down a twisted path filled with unsettling discoveries and more than a few illegal escapades.
