She comes to Petula's defense and knocks Brian on the back of his head with a piece of scaffolding. But complications arise. Somehow Brian turns up dead. If there's anyone Petula is more terrified of than her boyfriend, it's his even more dangerous older brother--who also happens to be her boss.

But a corrupt, lascivious police detective uncovers the scheme and Dorothy's irate boyfriend shows up looking for revenge and leaving Petula and Dorothy at the mercy of three perilous men...
