This film is a shocking indictment of the hypocrisy and cruelty of the Japanese sex industry and the society that passively condones it. A young prostitute named Ai (Miho Nikaido) specializes in bondage and sadomasochism. Her clientele includes the rich and powerful, a corrupt assortment that ranges from gangsters to corporate executives. As Ai's world of drugs and prostitution grows darker, she begins a desperate search for a way out, including a futile attempt to win the affections of one of her more civil clients. Although the film is intended to deliver a sharply critical message, in doing so, it depicts many graphic acts of sex and violence.
