It was co-written by future president of Troma Entertainment Lloyd Kaufman and produced by future director Oliver Stone.
When an attractive young model (Lynn Lowry) is tricked into committing suicide on camera by her pornographer boyfriend, her lesbian partner (Mary Woronov) has a vengeful plan: with the help of an exact lookalike of her lover, she hatches a scheme to take down the sleazy drug dealer for good.
Kaufman wrote the film in 1973 and, along with Theodore Gershuny and Ami Artzi, formed a film company called Armor Films in order to produce it. Kaufman was able to raise $100,000 himself and was set to direct, hiring friend Oliver Stone to associate produce. Before production, Kaufman decided to hand the position of director over to the more experienced Gershuny, who, in return, rewrote Kaufman's script and cast his then-wife Mary Woronov.
