Intermittent sexual encounters and a sleazy group of protagonists provide some interest in this otherwise undistinguished story about avarice and love. A chain of similar events begins when a young woman decides to bilk her middle-age "sugar daddy" of some money. She is temporarily living with him while his family is out of town and pretends she needs an abortion. So he plays on the sympathies of a lonely widow he keeps dangling on a romantically tinted string and gets the funds under false pretenses. The money then goes to his girlfriend but does not stay in her hands long because her young boyfriend needs it for his own purposes. The girlfriend does not know that those purposes involve another woman, and the boyfriend does not know that he is being bilked. And so the beat goes on....
