Josette (Josette Valague), a stripper at the San Souci nightclub, is kidnapped at the airport when she returns from a freelance gig in Las Vegas. Her abductors are two desperate criminals with a briefcase full of loot. Their car breaks down in a remote forest, and after a struggle that leaves her stripped to her underwear, Josette manages to grab the money and run through the woods. Thinking she has eluded her kidnappers, she takes some time out for a refreshing nude swim and a short nap, but Josette is still in danger. A circus geek (Mike Butts), kept captive in a rundown carnival freakshow and forced to perform degrading stunts, has escaped from his cage and further torments the unfortunate naked girl. The crazed, drooling geek chases Josette back to the amusement park, and she attempts to evade him by jumping on a rollercoaster. The action is frequently interrupted with scenes of the San Souci girls performing their striptease numbers and primping backstage.
