Anna Lucasta has left her Pennsylvania home to become a streetwalker in Brooklyn. Initially rejected by her father for her sinful life style, she is welcomed back into the bosom of her family as a plan is devised to match her up with Rudolf Slocum, the son of a family friend. But several of her family members have ulterior motives, namely to separate Rudolf, whom they perceive as a “hick,” from his bankroll. Only her mother, Theresa, and a sister-in-law, Katie, actually care what happens to Anna. Additionally, some of Anna’s former associates in Brooklyn want to continue exploiting her sexually.
