Set somewhere in the near future, this black tale tells of nouveau debutante Catherine, who is being initiated into her friends' sordid cafe society world. She must choose from a small group of pre-purchased performers who will entertain the diners for the evening - but the "entertainment" leaves Catherine fighting to the death for what she believes is right.
In an opulent cafe, Catherine finds herself caught up in a bizarre and decadent society where pleasure prevails at any price.
But that pursuit of pleasure becomes Catehrine's darkest fear.
Will she have the courage to stand alone?
Janet Roddick sings a smoky, atmospheric musical accompaniment composed by Jeremy Dempsey, for this dark, twisty little film.
