A diamond heist turns in to a bloody double-cross. When Shirley Fields kills her lover after he murders his fellow heist-men, she gets into jail. Under the sadistic reign of the warden and her fellow nude-sleeping inmates, her escape is already planned. Who are friends and who are double-crossing bastards, and where is the diamonds?

It’s cheap. It’s simple. It’s bad. It’s perverted. Still, Franco’s films got something. I can’t give these films a good score. Still I enjoy the hell out of these slow paced nudie-flicks. Lina Romay steels every frame with her always present sexuality.
