Lust and corruption destroy the career of a prominent senator in this super-sleazy political drama. He is involved with at least three different women, one of whom he inadvertently impregnates during a big party. Another of the senator's women takes the girl to a back-alley abortionist who violates the poor woman. Eventually the Senator asks one of the women to marry him, but later as he is watching a skin-flick he realizes that his beloved is the star and he drops dead from heart failure.
