Storyline

Isabel is a beautiful aspiring singer with great aspirations but persistent bad luck convicted of a crime she did not commit. Serving time in prison she is released under parole and lands a singing gig at a dive in Barcelona where she meets Sandro "The Greek" and his partner lover Gloria. The couple is posing as entertainment promoters but they are really running a prostitution ring based in Beirut. They offer Isabel a two-year contract to perform in "night clubs" in the Near and Mideast even after they learn that she cannot travel abroad due to her legal status. Upon arrival in Beirut, Isabel and the other girls are sped away to a luxurious villa where they discover the real intentions of the pseudo-promoters. They are expected to sing and dance but also to engage in sexual activities with the rich clients that patronize the place. Isabel pretends to go along with the situation but she has a plan to get away. Written by Omar Martinez

Trivia

It was rumored at the time that star Sara Montiel was partly responsible for Ladislao Vajda's heart attack. She had recently married in Rome attorney Vicente Ramirez Olalla in a Catholic ceremony with the Pope's blessing but was soon having an affair with leading man Giancarlo Del Duca. The husband would sometimes show up during filming and add a lot of tension to the proceedings. According to sources the stress was too much for director Vadja. See more »
