Drug abuse is not funny and this mid '50s melodrama does not want the audience to forget that for a minute as it tells the low-budget exploitative tale of a good girl gone bad. Her downward spiral started with a single puff on a marijuana cigarette. From there it was pills and after that it was only a matter of time before she began injecting heroin. Fully addicted, her life became a lurid nightmare as she struggled constantly to maintain the "high" her body craved. Even accidents and hospitalization cannot stop the mad demon inside and soon she becomes a dealer. It is only after the police capture her that she is forced to get the monkey off her back and start upon a new, more productive life.
