A charming, adrenaline packed love story, Sheer Pressure follows Alex Halaby and Emily Lukes, two thirty-year-olds emotionally encumbered by money and family, as they struggle through a social and business mine field to become fully-realized adults.MoreA charming, adrenaline packed love story, Sheer Pressure follows Alex Halaby and Emily Lukes, two thirty-year-olds emotionally encumbered by money and family, as they struggle through a social and business mine field to become fully-realized adults.Alex, the stunted playboy son of a pantyhose magnate, is struggling to break away and become a free spirit, but is soon thrust by circumstances into the arena, where the stakes are all or nothing. Emilys marriage to megamillionaire art collector Charles Lukes lacks passion and respect, and her overpowering attraction to Alex threatens to destroy the lives and dreams of many. While treachery abounds, two parallel universes threaten to collide with untold consequences.Sheer Pressure deftly captures the worlds of Upper East Side Manhattan and big business with unique flair, offering a bona fide insiders perspective. While lampooning upper-crust New York society-especially its women and highpowered moguls-Sheer Pressure is a romantic romp that buzzes along with high humor, terrific hairpin turns, unpredictable twists, and a surprise ending.
