Set in a passionless world of multi-lane freeways, Crashis the story of advertising executive James Ballard (James Spader) and his wife Catherine (Deborah Kara Unger), who lead complex, if hollow, sexual lives.
Following a near fatal car crash with Dr. Helen Remington (Holly Hunter), Ballard is drawn into an exploration of the connections between danger, sex and death. As their involvement with photographer-scientist Vaughan (Elias Koteas) and accident victim Gabrielle (Rosanna Arquette) deepens, Ballard and Catherine find new and disturbing ways of expressing love.
