This German melodrama intentionally crosses the line into self-parody at times. The story's theme is sexual and relational ambiguity. Raymond has a girlfriend, Ria, and an unusually affectionate (and jealous) brother. When he stumbles into a lesbian strip joint, he falls in love with its star, Harlis. Despite her apparent sexual orientation, Harlis is surprisingly responsive to Raymond's advances. However, she is also in love with her fellow stripper, Pera. Complicated and gory mayhem results from Raymond's pursuit of Harlis.
