This voyeuristic story finds the wealthy philanthropist Sayer (Philippe Leroy) getting his weekend jollies as a sadist. When his usual street-walking female can't make the scene, he employs his willing secretary Mary (Dagmar Lassander) to take her place. After submitting to his demands, she takes over as the aggressive sexual predator, seemingly curing Sayer of his impotence. Mary dominates the rejuvenated Sayer until he has a massive heart attack in this erotically tinged thriller. This marks the directorial debut for Piero Schivazappa.
