Dr. Logan is the gatekeeper of everyone’s secrets, but after she launches her ‘Penthouse Project”, a research project about why women cheat, the deadly secrets of three women threaten her career and her life when a dead body is found, and the police identify her as the primary suspect.
“The thing that kills most relationships is the secret, not the affair,” says Dr. Logan before introducing her three clients; Gina, Jordan and Syleena.
Gina Rodriguez (Erica Mena), is an aspiring reality star who’s sick of living in the shadow of her husband, professional baseball player Julio Rodriguez (Javier Villamil, Jumanji: Next Level), and wants the spotlight to herself.

Unfortunately for her, the danger is looming, when Terrell is linked to Mona Dee (TS Madison; Zola, The TS Madison Experience), a ruthless kingpin of a drug family and strip club owner running her business with an iron fist.
In between receiving pleasure, it looks like the ladies will be on the receiving end of some major CRIMINAL drama and it all could come crashing down for Dr. Logan whose given them full access to a luxury penthouse to explore their secret desires…and potentially be the subjects of her next best seller.
As the gatekeeper of the indiscretions of the rich and powerful, will the deadly secrets of these three women end her career…or her life?
