Violet is a b-girl and dancer at the notorious Celebrity Club. Frank, a wealthy playboy, visits the club, meets Penny, another entertainer, and becomes involved in the lives of the two women. Brand, Vi's boyfriend, arranges a modeling session for Vi; his intention is to obtain pornographic photographs with which to blackmail Vi. During the session, Brand arrives unexpectedly and rapes Vi, thus providing the photographer with enough "material" to make movies and snap photographs. Meanwhile, Brand seduces Penny and coerces her into prostitution. Penny's first client is Frank. Brand kills Vi when she tries to go to the police, and he hides in Penny's apartment. He tortures Penny and is about to kill her when Frank arrives, causing Brand accidentally to kill himself.
