From a Conneticut sanitarium, 24 year-old Betsy Scott tells her doctor a story about the destructive secrets in an outwardly successful family. Since You Ask is about the the origins of sexual compulsion, and the way in which one young woman attempts to overcome it. Born on the island of Antigua, Betsy and her brothers - the drug addict Raymond and the cool, detached Eric - are relocated to Manhatten. There, Betsy begins series of secret affairs that take her into increasingly dark situations.
