Storyline

Charming working class boy Eric is moving up by pimping in Martin Duvall's nightclub. He falls in love with naive Jessica 'Jesse' Kerner, who enjoys the luxury life and doesn't have to do a thing. Still Jesse's single mother Katherine 'Kate' Kerner, who always was permissive to avoid resembling her own strict mother, judge Edna Burton, mistrusts Eric. Her bugging ends up driving Jesse in the arms of hard pimp Russell, who hides her. Kate goes looking, but the police sees no crime, so Edna's help is now wanted. Written by KGF Vissers

Compelling drama, Lindsay Wagner was great
7 August 2009 | by blakewpSee all my reviews

I caught this little gem of a movie early Saturday morning and was very glad I did. The whole "Pimp and Ho" shtick has been parodied to the point that we've almost forgotten what we're parodying. This movie sets the tone for the ugly, messy underground of Pimps, Street Walkers and strained families. There's no punches pulled as Lindsay Wagners' daughter is sucked into the underground and slowly turned to prostitution.

I really enjoyed this. I'm surprised that only negative comments were listed on this page. I recommend this for everyone, especially for parents of young daughters.

On a side note, I think Lindsay Wagner is a very sexy woman even now into her 60s (although this movie has an unsexy tone).
