Paul, the owner of a strip club bar on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles, is taken home after being knocked out at a brothel, whose madam sends two thieves to Paul's club to rob the place while he is unconscious.

When the star dancer at the bar quits, Paul's wife Kelly fills in for her. The bartender Ray then seduces her and takes her to his home, and the thieves Cal and Feeny begin working on cracking the safe. When Paul comes to and cannot find his wife at home, he goes to the club, where the thieves are engaged in their work.

Paul manages to kill the two robbers after Claire has been killed and Ray seriously wounded.

The Los Angeles Times said the film was "not much different from his [Meyer's] previous efforts... Meyer has trouble keeping abreast, so to speak, of the times. This is because Meyer has such a clean mind for a man who makes dirty movies... his films seem positively healthy alongside much of the current Hollywood and European product."[3]

The New York Times thought the film was "no longer particularly erotic."[4]
