She offers him half her sandwich and then realizes that this is the very same man that had robbed the bank she was in, that someone was killed. Suddenly Sally Sue finds herself kidnapped and headed to the Wild West.
Back to the present, 135 years later, Anne McFarland is an artist who lives in San Francisco, who loves to browse in off-beat stores to look for objects that can be used in her art. She is applying for an art position and special program at the museum. One of the things that catches Anne’s eye is a sexy green and black lace corset.
