The twenty-one year-old streetwalker Sylvia Vane is narcissistic with the beauty of her face. After killing a pimp and stealing his jewels, she heads to a pawnshop to raise money to buy expensive clothes to seduce the wealthy bachelor Ronnie Price. The pawnbroker offers ten-thousand dollars for her beauty and advises that she has four months to retrieve it, and Sylvia believes he is crazy. Sylvia succeeds in her intent and she moves to Ronnie's penthouse. Four months later, she finds wrinkles on her face and she remembers her debt with the pawnshop owner. Will she have time to revert the situation? Written by
