Synopsis

Dorothy is having a bad day. After her deranged boyfriend, Tony, trashes her apartment, steals her money and dyes her white dog, Pluto, bright pink, Dorothy runs into Petula who is on the brink of being strangled in a dark alley by her own boyfiend, Brian. She comes to Petula's defense and knocks Brian on the back of his head with a piece of scaffolding. But complications arise. Somehow Brian turns up dead. If there's anyone Petula is more terrified of than her boyfriend, it's his even more dangerous older brother--who also happens to be her boss. With a scheme that seems to develop on its own, Petula tells him Brian has been kidnapped for a lot of ransom. They may as well get something out of the ordeal. But a corrupt, lascivious police detective uncovers the scheme and Dorothy's irate boyfriend shows up looking for revenge and leaving Petula and Dorothy at the mercy of three perilous men...
