Male escorts for homosexual clients ply their trade to tragic result in this semi-experimental and disturbingly violent film. Much of the narrative centers on handsome Harry, an aspiring actor and professed heterosexual who has been working for the High Noon escort service for many years. As an 'escort' he specializes in gay fetishes. In one of the more graphic sex scenes, he allows a producer to exploit his body in order to win a small part on cop-show. Harry also takes time to show Dean, a new recruit at the service how to satisfy customers' fantasies. Dean loves his new job and takes to it most naturally. Then there is Harry's other student, Billy, the classic surfer boy. One night Billy mistakes a fellow in a car for a client and rides off with him. For the young escort it's love at first sight, but unfortunately he ends up beaten to death by gay bashers. An investigation reveals that the madam at the High Noon may be responsible. In the end, Harry too meets tragedy when he participates in a 'snuff ' film.. Unfortunately for Harry his scene is real and the ensuing gratuitous violence may be highly offensive and upsetting for some viewers.
