(Gina Gershon), a lesbian ex-con who has just finished a five year jail
sentence, arrives at an apartment building to start work as a plumber
and decorator. On the way up to the apartment she encounters the couple
that live next-door, Violet (Jennifer Tilly) and Caesar (Joe
Pantoliano). Shortly after Corky starts work, Violet asks Corky to help
her retrieve an earring from her sink. Corky extracts the earring and
Violet gives her a beer in return. Violet admits she lost the earring
on purpose, and begins to seduce Corky.
