Three tales of women who are led into prostitution have been collected in this vintage sexploitation drama. Callie Sue (Fleurette Carter) is an African-American woman who grew up in the rural South. Callie Sue's introduction to sex came at the hands of two racist thugs who raped her when she proved unreceptive to their advances. Years later, she works as a typist, but turns tricks with white customers as a way of channeling her contempt for Anglo men. Julie (Sharon Kent) is a beautiful but naïve 19-year-old who has come to the big city to make it big as a dancer. Julie's sleazy manager, Mike, sets her up on an audition with a producer who can supposedly put her career into high gear; however, she finds out the hard way Mike expects Julie to sleep with him in order to get the job. And Barbara (Monica Davis) is a jaded housewife who has taken to gambling to pass the time. Barbara owes more money than she can pay, and hasn't been able to persuade her husband to give her enough to clear her debts. When her bookie (Lucky Kargo) arrives at her home to collect the dough, he convinces her of an easy way to make back the money.
