At first, he shoots both of them, but then finds himself re-experiencing the events in his mind. Instead of shooting them, he forces Ashley and Damien to disclose about their personal lives and their sexual encounters. He learns that he has a three-month pregnant wife, Jasmine, and that Ashley's abusive ex-boyfriend was actually her ex-husband.

Stop it with the AWFUL Louisiana "accents" Hollywood!
It was a decent premise and could have made a good film but from the opening credits, the guy sounded like he belonged in Steel Magnolias as opposed to being in New Orleans. It's 2016! Everyone has heard New Orleans accents by now and they should know they aren't dripping in sweet tea & magnolias. Get it right and maybe, MAYBE I could watch the film again. Not only was it a terribly fake accent from all who attempted it, it was SO FORCED -- sometimes there, sometimes not.
Other people might like it better than I did if they can ignore the accents or don't care that they're fake. I've seen worse acting at a local high school, and the plot was plausible and interesting.
