Fiona lives a wild and reckless life outside the law. Abandoned on a New York city street by her mother as a baby, she survived a foster home with an abusive father to become a crack-smoking prostitute. Fiona kills three cops with the same nonchalance with which she seduces and gets seduced, then takes refuge in a neighborhood crackhouse. She meets Anita, a prostitute ravaged and exhausted by life and the two becomes friends - only to realize they are in fact mother and daughter. Gritty and unsparing, the film blends an original screenplay with actual documentary footage shot in a lower east side crackhouse, with real prostitutes playing some of the key roles. The film focuses on the relationships without descending into voyeurism or pity. Going beyond the graphics of sex and seduction, to convey authenticity that transcends the line between reality and fiction.
