Just as the singing star Bobbie Warren (Pia Zadora) finishes her act, she is clapped into handcuffs by police lieutenant Thurston (Telly Savalas) and jailed in a woman's prison until she tells them about her mobster boyfriend. Eventually, she gets out, but not unscathed -- she was raped while in prison -- and when she is back in Vegas, her life is in danger from the mob and a few hitmen. Car chases and other action-filled scenes ensue, while a romantic interest begins to develop between the singer and her bodyguard (Desi Arnaz, Jr.). Meanwhile, Lieutenant Thurston is heading for a final round-up with the nefarious mobsters.
